This past week, November 29th through December 5th, the Columbia Valley RCMP responded to 80 calls for service. The following is a summary of some of the files our officers responded to.
On November 30th Columbia Valley officers recovered a stolen 27’ Citation travel trailer at a camp site on the Findlay forest service road near Canal Flats.
