On Monday, police were called to an apparent overdose of an unknown subject. Due to the reported drug that had been consumed and the agitated state of the male the medical health of the male was a concern.  The male was placed inside an ambulance and police escorted the male to the hospital and ensured the safety of the male and all attending staff.

On Sunday, police were called to the Montrose area where a suspicious vehicle was parked. Upon arrival police found a male in the truck and in care and control of that vehicle. The driver provided a breath sample into a roadside screening device with a “Fail” result. Based on this result and the driving record of the male, a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition was issued. The vehicle was impounded for 30 days and the driver now has multiple fines to pay prior to getting his drivers licence back.

On Feb. 4, police were called to a residence in the west Trail area where a male was visiting his ex- partners home and would not leave. The caller was worried for their safety and called police. The male had left the area prior to police arrival and checks later located the male who was arrested and released on conditions of not contacting or going to the home of the caller. A peace bond will be pursued.

On Feb. 4, police were alerted to a report of a robbery that was reported to have occurred earlier in the day behind a downtown Trail bank. The investigator was aware of recent dealings the police had with the victim.  The victim was spoken to and details of the events did not match with other details known to police. The investigator confronted the man about these details as well as warned the male about the criminal charge of public mischief for filing a false police report.  The male then refused to provide any further information about the incident and has since refused to co-operate with the investigation.
