Peeing in Public

On October 1 at 1pm Police were conducting patrols around Museum Park and observed a 64 year-old male peeing into a pile of dirt next to the park. Police instructed the male to stop peeing and zip-up his pants, however the male was unable to stop peeing. Once the male stopped peeing, police were about to arrest the male for being intoxicated in public when a friend of the male pulled up and stated they would be taking care of him and transporting him home. The male was cautioned for peeing in public and allowed to be transported home with his friend.

Motor Vehicle Collision

On October 2 at 9pm Lillooet RCMP were notified of downed power lines across the road at Station Hill. Police attended where traffic on both sides of the downed lines had already been stopped by the Lillooet Fire department. A small red vehicle was located 30m over the embankment with a caved in roof. No one was located inside. Lillooet Fire department deployed an infrared camera due to darkness but no one was located in the surrounding area. The vehicle was found with invalid plates, and registered to a previously deceased person. BC Hydro attended and the lines were repaired within 2 hours.

Stolen bike recovered

Lillooet RCMP recovered a stolen bicycle valued at over $5000. The bicycle was stolen nearly one month ago, and was located by police while at a property for an unrelated matter. No suspect was located on scene. The bicycle was reunited with a very happy owner.

Intoxicated in Public


On October 5 at 3pm a female complainant reported seeing a man down, laying in a ditch near the Fort Berens winery. BC ambulance was activated and police attended locating a 52 year-old male who then was barely standing, but standing on the side of the highway trying to hitch a ride. The male was heavy intoxicated but denied passing out in the ditch. The party apparently wasn’t about to end as the male was located with an unopened 15 pack of Lucky Lager, and an unopened bottle of Fort Berens Pinot Noir. Police spoiled any plans for a hot date and arrested the male for being intoxicated in public, and transported him to Lillooet cells to safely sober up.
