Theft of vehicle

On June 1 at 3:22 a.m. police responded to a theft of a vehicle on 25th Street.

“The vehicle was parked in a driveway where two young offenders were witnessed driving off in the vehicle,” said Cpl. Richard Lanz of the Grand Forks RCMP detachment. “At this time charges are being submitted against the two young offenders.”

The young offenders are from Kelowna.

Shoplifter at Overwaitea

On June 3 at 8:34 a.m. RCMP received a call about a shoplifter at Overwaitea Foods in Grand Forks who had just left the store with some meat.

“Employees at the store witnessed the theft and followed the male outside where the male took off running,” said Lanz. “The male has been identified as a local male aged 55.”

Dirt bike rider stopped

On June 5 at 12:37 p.m. police observed a male riding an uninsured dirt bike on 68th Avenue and Second Street in Grand Forks.

“Police stopped the male and a violation ticket was issued for no valid insurance, not wearing a helmet and not having a valid driver’s licence,” said Lanz. “The male was also served with an indefinite suspension from driving as requested by the motor vehicle branch.”

The male is a 44-year-old Grand Forks resident.

Déjà vu

On June 8 police were investigating an allegation about an uninsured motorcyclist on 68th Avenue.

“While the police were investigating the complaint, the suspect of that complaint approached the police driving another vehicle,” said Lanz. “As a result, the driver, who was prohibited from driving under the Motor Vehicle Act, was charged with driving while prohibited.”

The driver was the same person as the brief above.

Vehicle stopped and checked

On June 9 at 10:15 p.m. a vehicle was stopped and checked by police on Central Avenue.

“At this check it was determined that the driver had been consuming alcohol,” said Lanz. “A demand was read and a breath sample was taken using a roadside screening device.”

The result of the test was a warn and the driver, a local 43-year-old male, was issued a three-day driving prohibition.

Mischief

On June 15 police received a report of mischief that occurred two days prior on East Lake Drive at Christina Lake.

“Unknown person spray painted a residence’s roof and cedar siding with Grad 2015,” said Lanz.
