Suspected prowler actually delivery person

RCMP responded to a report of a possible prowler in the 1700 block of Kootenay Avenue on Dec. 7. When they arrived at the home, a package was found on the front doorstep. The caller thought that someone was lurking around the neighbourhood, but they were delivering a parcel to the caller’s home.

“For some reason, they thought it was suspicious… The complainant was relieved that there was no prowler and they received their parcel,” Corporal Devon Gerrits said.

Vehicle reported stolen found parked across the street

On Dec. 9, someone reported their car was stolen at the Tim Hortons on Second Avenue West. After the police arrived, they discovered the owner forgot they parked across the street, where the car was found.

Resident fined for loud music

Loud music was coming from a home on Raven Place at 11:30 p.m. Since the police had been called to the house two weeks earlier for another noise complaint, the person who lives there had already received a warning and was fined $200.

Youth reported for violating bail

A youth was reported for violating the curfew condition of their bail. Their guardian called the RCMP, who are investigating and reporting the youth to the Crown for failing to comply with bail conditions. The youth has not returned home but is not considered to be a risk to the public.
