Sooner or later speeders will slow down around 100 Mile

100 Mile House RCMP continue to pull excessive speeders off the road

100 Mile House RCMP responded to 66 complaints and calls for service during the past week.

Speedster nabbed

There was one vehicle stopped for excessive speed over the past week.

The male driver from Vancouver Island was operating his vehicle 50 km/h over the posted speed limit. He was issued a violation ticket for excessive speed and his vehicle was impounded for seven days.

Refused to blow

On Sept. 8 shortly before 11 p.m., 100 Mile RCMP responded to a report of a single-vehicle rollover incident on Canim-Hendrix Lake Road near Anderson Road at Gateway.

Passers-by had stopped to assist the male driver and sole occupant from the vehicle. He displayed symptoms of having consumed liquor.

The man was issued a demand to provide a breath sample into an approved roadside screening device, but he refused. His behaviour escalated at the scene and he was placed under arrest and held until sober.

The driver did not possess a valid licence and he was subject to a vehicle impound. The vehicle was towed from the scene and impounded.

The man was released on a promise to appear with a court date in December. The investigation into this matter is continuing.

Break-in and theft

On April 16, Clinton RCMP received a report that a storage container located in the 70 Mile House area had been broken into and emptied of approximately $30,000 worth of property.

On Sept. 7, after further investigation, 100 Mile House RCMP executed a series of search warrants on storage lockers located in the 93 Mile House area and recovered 47 articles from the April break-and-enter. The dollar amount of the recovered property is not known at this time.

These items were all returned to the property owner. 100 Mile House RCMP have two persons of interest in this investigation who are known to be involved in break-and-enters and property-crime offences.

The investigation into the matter is continuing.
