Intoxicated in public
On October 15, 2021 Kitimat RCMP received a call of an intoxicated male who had fallen on the sidewalk and possibly hit his head. The caller reported that there was second person involved too. Police responded along with paramedics who assessed the male who was medically cleared and deemed safe to return home. Police assisted by providing the male transportation to his residence.
On October 16, 2021 Kitimat RCMP responded to a report of a disturbance at an apartment complex that a resident was shouting at teenagers. Police attended; however, the teenagers had already left the area. Police spoke with the resident who was yelling who said the teenagers were verbally bullying someone and the resident was just trying to intervene. The individual was warned for the disturbance.
On October 17, 2021 a member of the Kitimat RCMP was conducting patrols when they were flagged down by someone who reported they were getting repeated calls from the same number for the past three months and wanted them to stop. The police officer phoned the number which said it was Border Services; however, there was no answer. The officer believes the number might be shown as a result of
Caller ID spoofing, which is the ability to alter the Caller ID shown to display a different number – a tactic often used by fraudulent callers. Kitimat RCMP want to remind the public of such fraudulent callers and to report such calls to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
On October 18, 2021 Kitimat RCMP received a call from the paramedics regarding a motor vehicle collision on Kingfisher Avenue.

On October 19, 2021 Kitimat RCMP received a report of a check well-being on a male sitting in his vehicle in a parking lot. The male was seen acting strangely and yelling at people causing callers to be concerned. Police arrived and conducted roadside screening, and determined the driver’s ability was impaired by drugs. A 24 hour driving prohibition was issued to the driver.

On October 21, 2021 Kitimat RCMP received a dropped 9-1-1 call from a residence with no answer upon callback attempts. Police attended the residence and confirmed that there was no emergency and that everyone was safe.
