The month of June produced six incidents of note for the Trail Crime Reduction Unit, detailed in a recent report to city council.
Motor vehicle prohibition, June 28
Trail Crime Reduction Unit (TCRU) members observed a vehicle pull up behind their unmarked police car on Rossland Avenue in Trail, recognizing the driver as being prohibited from operating a motor vehicle.
The driver was issued an appearance notice for court and his vehicle was impounded for seven days as a result.
A charge of driving while prohibited was recommended under the Motor Vehicle Act.
Canada-wide parole warrant, June 28
TRCU members continued to comb the streets of Trail and Castlegar in an effort to track down a 26-year-old man wanted on a Canada-wide parole warrant.
The man, who has a violent history, was believed to be involved in drug trafficking within the communities, had fled from police on June 15 when they attempted to arrest him.
Possession of stolen property, June 27
Const. Orr executed an arrest of a 22-year-old woman in downtown Trail for an outstanding warrant of arrest for the possession of stolen property.
The woman was held in custody in Trail overnight and appeared in Rossland Provincial Court June 28. She was released from custody and issued a future court date.
Peace bond application, June 20
Officers dealt with two highly agitated people on June 14.
One of the two men had made veiled threats towards the officer and, as such, an application for a peace bond was made.
A peace bond is not a criminal charge but rather an order made by the courts to restrict contact between individuals when a person fears for their safety, the safety of their property, or both.
Possession of marijuana. June 14
TCRU members were conducting surveillance on an unrelated matter when a traffic stop was initiated with a suspicious vehicle at the Nancy Greene Provincial Park.
The two occupants of the vehicle were arrested under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. TRCU members seized drug paraphernalia and a quantity of marijuana from the trunk.
The two were released without charge because of the relatively small amount of marijuana seized.
Trafficking MDMA, June 1
A 20-year-old woman was arrested by police for trafficking MDMA (ecstatsy).
The woman was from Trail and had a warrant of arrest issued after selling MDMA capsules to undercover police officers in July, 2011.
The woman was released from custody and issued a future court date.
