Man arrested in Blackpool

A friendly reminder that it is time to changeover your winter tires

During the evening of April 28, Clearwater police received a call of a man and woman arguing on the street. Police responded, however, the male had left the scene. Officers waited until he arrived and arrested him for breaching his conditions by consuming alcohol.

The man walked and then started to run away from the officer who followed close behind. He was eventually secured with the help of a passer by.

The man was held for Kamloops court and appeared on new charges including four counts of breaching conditions, assaulting a police officer and resisting police officers in the execution of their duties. The man was held in custody and is awaiting the court’s response.

Take off your winter tires

A friendly reminder that it is time to changeover your winter tires. Despite the weather, winter tires are no longer required as spring is here and summer is just around the corner, on paper at least.

Theft of tools

Clearwater RCMP is looking for information about a theft from the LDM maintenance yard in Blue River.

Sometime on the weekend of April 12-13, the yard was broken into and a water pump and two Ingersoll Rand drills were taken.

The water pump is similar to a Honda water pump while the drills are painted with green spray paint.

If anyone has been approached by a person looking to sell these items or if anyone knows anything about the theft, please contact the police station or Crime Stoppers.

Check your fence lines

We are well into the spring season and entering the summer. A friendly reminder that if you own cattle or horses and have property along the highway, please check your fence lines.

There is no doubt it is a never ending chore, but unfortunately, it is difficult to escape liability if a domestic animal was to be a factor in a collision.

Better to be safe than sorry.
