Cpl. Judson Mayes of the Midway RCMP detachment reports they had zero calls for service regarding any concerns for the Halloween evening. Midway members made patrols in all jurisdictions and were pleased to find parents out with their little ones going from door to door in a safe manner, he said.
On Tuesday, Nov. 4, Midway RCMP were alerted to a call in Greenwood of a male going through unlocked vehicles at dusk, described as a lone male, wearing a dark hoodie, blue jeans, approximate height 173cm (5’8), and 77kg, 170 lbs.
Midway RCMP would like to remind residents to lock their vehicle doors to prevent theft of personal items. Anyone with information regarding this occurrence please call Midway RCMP (250-449-2244) and report your information.
Winter road conditions across most of B.C. often include snow and ice, Mayes pointed out. Rapid changes in elevation and weather can make the province’s highway conditions unpredictable. You may start a trip in sunshine but face stretches of slush, ice, heavy snowfall or compact snow along the way.
Drivers must obey winter tire and chain signs throughout the province from Oct.1 to March 31.
Sections of highways requiring winter tires or chains onboard are marked with roadside signs.
Should you go beyond the signs without the proper equipment, you may be turned around by RCMP, CVSE, or another policing agency, and be subject to a fine, Mayes confirmed
RCMP are investigating a break and enter to a house in the Bridesville area that took place between Oct. 26 and Oct. 28. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Midway RCMP.
*** According to Mayes, on the evening of Nov. 10 Midway residents observed a lone male on a bike looking in vehicle windows and windows to homes. The description given was a male on a bike. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Midway RCMP.
The corporal reminds Boundary residents to lock their vehicle doors and windows and call the Midway RCMP with any suspicious activity forthwith.
A further reminder —when warming up your vehicle during the winter months be mindful that car thieves are looking for any opportunity to steal a running vehicle.
