On Wednesday, May 14 Midway RCMP were called to report a suspicious male up Christian Valley road who was hitchhiking and had been picked up by a local resident. This hitchhiker told the driver that he was being chased by other people but did not want the police to be called.

The police were eventually called and it was learned that this male was involved in an altercation with two other people.

The argument led to two people being sprayed with bear spray and another vehicle being completely destroyed by the use of a crow bar.

Corporal Kevin Christensen of the Midway RCMP reported that possible charges of assault with a weapon, mischief and drug charges are being investigated.

On Wednesday, May 21, Midway RCMP received a complaint of a theft of seven Megabags used for recycling, stolen from the Greenwood Landfill. These large bags are similar to farming seeding bags but have a “Green by Nature” stamped on the bag. If you have any information regarding this theft, call the Midway RCMP.

Also on Wednesday, May 21, police located and arrested two males by the Canada/U.S.A. border in the same area where United States Border Patrol located several bags of a controlled substance on their side of the border. The investigation is ongoing and charges are anticipated soon.

On Monday, May 26, Midway RCMP received a complaint of a truck that had driven off the road on Hwy 33 just north of the Kettle River Campground. It was discovered that this truck had been stolen from a business in Nelson. So far no suspects have been identified.
