Police were present throughout the Rossland Winter Carnival last weekend where many people attended the many festivities during the weekend. There were minimal calls for police service during the weekend and police conducted patrols on both foot and in vehicles. Violation tickets were issued for possessing alcohol in a public place and other Provincial Statute offences.

On Tuesday police were called to a call of a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle in the downtown Trail area. The pedestrian had been crossing the street legally when the driver of the vehicle failed to yield to the pedestrian. The pedestrian suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The driver was issued a violation ticket for the incident.

In the early morning of Jan. 23 a police officer pulled over a vehicle in the East Trail area after it was observed having a broken headlight. After speaking with the driver the officer asked for a drivers licence which the driver could not produce.  Checks on the database showed that the driver was a prohibited driver. The driver was issued and appearance notice to show up in court and the vehicle was impounded.

Also on Jan. 23 a male was found behind a Trail area store loading store items into the trunk of his car. The arriving staff confronted the male who then left the area in his vehicle. The witness was able to follow the suspect vehicle into the Fruitvale area, police were able to locate and arrest the male.  The suspect vehicle was seized and towed to the detachment where a warrant to search the vehicle was obtained.  The suspect is a resident of the Fruitvale area and was released from custody with an upcoming court date.
