Two suspects identified in theft investigation

On October 29th, Ashcroft RCMP were called to the north Ashcroft area to reports of two suspects on a vacant property. Thanks to two members of the public, the suspects were located and identified quickly. A bag containing items stolen from the property was also located and the property returned to the family. The two suspects were arrested and released pending charge approval from Crown.

Traffic stop leads to expensive day for the driver

On November 16th, Ashcroft RCMP conducted a traffic stop with a grey Honda Civic in the Cache Creek area. Members identified that the vehicle was uninsured, and that the drivers’ license had expired. The driver was issued multiple violation tickets and the vehicle was towed.

Thought of the day

Property crime affects every community and can be awful to deal with personally. Victims or property crime can often feel unsafe, angry, or even violated. The thought that another person has disregarded you, your family, or your property can be a hard to contend with.

We all enjoy the fundamental right of security (see Section 7 of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms for full details) and your RCMP detachment work hard to identify and keep tabs on those individuals in our area that may attempt to take away that right through selfish or vindictive actions.

One of the best sources of information we, as the RCMP, receive regarding property crime is reports of suspicious or criminal activity from you, the public. If you have concerns regarding any activity you believe to be criminal in nature, please call us or feel free to stop by the detachment and talk.

Some key points you can implement to help the police prevent property crime are:

If you do find yourself as a victim of property crime (or any other crime, for that matter) Ashcroft RCMP has Victim Services available, who can support you through your personal experience.

On the off-chance that there are any property crime offenders reading this blog – we are aware of you. If you make selfish choices and take away someone’s right to security, we’ll see you soon.
