Breach of conditions charge

On June 25, 100 Mile RCMP stopped a pick-up truck in the 108 Mile subdivision after a complaint was received about the male driver possibly breaching the terms of his Conditional Sentence Order. The driver displayed symptoms of liquor consumption. He refused to provide a breath sample at the scene. Database checks confirmed that he was subject to a number of conditions and he was in breach of two of those. He was arrested and returned to the Detachment pending a Court appearance in 100 Mile on June 26.

Symptoms of liquor consumption

On June 23, Cariboo-Chilcotin Traffic Services were conducting a check stop on Highway 24. A male driver of a Chevrolet Cavalier approached the check stop. Upon interaction with the driver, he began to display symptoms of liquor consumption. An approved screening device was administered at the scene with the result being a “fail.” A second test was administered and the result was also a “fail.” The driver was issued an immediate 90-day roadside driving prohibition. His vehicle was towed and impounded for 30 days.

Collision

On June 23, police and emergency crews responded to a single-vehicle collision on Highway 97 just north of 100 Mile House. The female driver of GMC Yukon from Alaska somehow lost control of her vehicle and swerved into the north- bound ditch. The vehicle was moderately damaged.

Breach of Conditions charge

On June 22, 100 Mile RCMP pulled over a vehicle being driven by a male suspected of being in breach of his release conditions and probation on Exeter Road in 100 Mile House. After the investigation, the male driver was arrested and a number of items were located which confirmed he was in breach of his conditions.
