Suspicious occurrence
On June 29 at 1:00am a man reported hearing a loud thud, and that he found a white powder on the roof on his vehicle, in the 600 block of Main St. Police attended and the man pointed out the white powder, which turned out to be bird poop. The source of the thud was undetermined.

Intoxicated in public
On July 1 at 5pm Lillooet RCMP were patrolling Downton Park and observed one man standing over top of another man. The two immediately stopped once they saw police. A pile of beer cans was observed nearby and one of the men became belligerent with attending police officers. The man was clearly intoxicated and was arrested for being intoxicated in public and transported to Lillooet cells to sober up over night.

Disturbance
On July 2 at midnight police received a report of a disturbance in Bridge River. Police attended and were advised a man was intoxicated, screaming, punching walls and had broken a mirror. Police located the intoxicated man lying on the floor and barely able to stand. The man was arrested for breach of peace as the home owners wanted him removed. The man was provided his Charter rights, then ensured he informed police that he knew his rights, and then began smashing his head on the police vehicle. The man declined medical attention, and was transported to Lillooet cells to safely sober up.

Break and Enter
On July 3 at 3pm a woman reported someone had broken into her home in the Conway area, while they were away for a few nights. The woman reported nothing was stolen, or out of place, but a window screen was cut and it appeared someone had slept in a bed inside the residence. Police attended and observed a window was open where the screen had been cut. A black hoodie was left behind by the culprit. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Lillooet RCMP, please reference Lillooet RCMP file 2022-1312.

Suspicious occurrence
On July 3 at 4pm a man reported he was receiving disturbing texts messages containing photos of chopped up bodies, and messaging saying they were coming for him if he didn’t send money. Police attended and observed the text messages which appeared to suggest the man owed money to an Escort company, though the complainant denied that. The phone number appeared to be an Ontario area code. Police called the number and a male with an accent answered and only said text me, and send me money. The phone number was attached to a "Textnow" subscriber, which is a wifi phone service and recycles phone numbers. The messages appeared to be a scam in an effort to scare the victim into sending money. The complainant denied using an escort service and was confused about why he was receiving the texts. The man was informed to block the number and report to the Anti-Fraud Centre.

Theft
On July 5 at 4pm police received a report that an orange Chevrolet Avalanche pickup had pulled up to an SUV parked overnight on July 2-3, in the 100 block of Main St and attempted to siphon gas from the SUV. The man stated a small blonde woman, and unknown man exited the Avalanche and plugged a hose into the SUV’s gas tank. The owner of the SUV was awoken to the sound of a pump running, then heard the woman and man leave as he began making noise inside the SUV. The victim did not believe any fuel had been lost, and did not wish to pursue charges. Despite that, police located an orange Chevrolet Avalanche driven by a blonde female, and spoke with her. The woman denied participating in any gas siphoning. Police cautioned her that such activities are criminal offences.
