Suspicious person
On June 24 at 5am, a man reported he had chased off another man who was snooping around his camping trailer at the Cayoosh Creek Campground. The complainant reported the suspect man had bolt cutters, and later learned someone had removed the towing mirrors off his truck. Police made extensive patrols in the area but were unable to locate anyone of interest. The complainant called police later that day, advised he had found the suspects mountain bike, and that the suspect returned to his campsite, and offered the mirrors back in return for his bicycle. The complainant was unable to provide any useful descriptors other than the suspect was riding a black mountain bike.

Plane crash
On June 24 at 5pm Lillooet RCMP were advised of an emergency beacon activation from an aircraft mapping to a location unreachable by road, but closest access was Laluwissin FSR off Hwy 12. Police made patrols and did locate multiple campers and dirt bikers. At 9:30pm, Lillooet RCMP received an update that Search and Rescue located the pilot and plane crash site near the top of a peak. The pilot was apparently uninjured but picked up by helicopter and flown to a Vancouver hospital.

Suspicious occurrence
On June 26 at 6pm, a woman reported she had returned home in the upper Heights area of Lillooet, from work and found a window open on the ground floor of her residence. Police attended and spoke with the woman who stated the window was closed when she left for work that morning, but returned to find it off its running track and open. Nothing was stolen and there was no apparent entry into the house. Police spoke with immediate neighbours who all stated they did not see anyone suspicious in the area.

Road check
On June 27 at 10pm Lillooet RCMP conducted a road check in the 700 block of Main St. Approximately 15 vehicles were checked. One verbal warning was given. The check stop was concluded at 2300hrs.

Wildlife Act
On June 28 at 8pm, police were advised of a gunshot heard near Airport Rd. Further investigation revealed a man had shot a deer with a .22cal rifle. As deer were out of season for hunting, BC Conservation was engaged and attended. Police located a partially butchered deer and a man that claimed he had shot the deer. The deer was seized, as was the man’s firearm. The man is potentially facing numerous charges under the Wildlife Act and Criminal Code. The file remains under further investigation.
