On September 13 police were alerted to a single vehicle accident on Highway 22 near Genelle. Police attended and a witness identified a 29 year old male as the driver of a vehicle that was having trouble staying in their own lane and eventually drove into the right hand ditch. Police detained the driver for an impaired investigation and after being brought back to the detachment the driver refused to provide a breath sample. The driver was charged with the criminal offence of refusing to provide a sample, given a 90 day driving prohibition and a promise to appear in court.
In the early morning of September 15 police were called to a vehicle alarm going off in the downtown area of Trail. The truck was located with its doors unlocked and its alarm going off. Police identified the home of the registered owner but after several attempts, there was no answer at the door. As police were at the scene the alarm quit and police noted that nothing seemed to be disturbed or missing from the vehicle.
On September 16, around 6:00 pm, police were called to possible break and enter in progress in the Rossland Ave area of Trail as a male was seen entering a rear window of a home. Police responded immediately and upon arriving it was determined that the male lived at the residence and had locked himself out. The citizen who called in the report was thanked for the call and updated that it was the home owner.
