A woman was arrested on Valentine's Day for assaulting her male partner.

  • Feb. 20, 2014 7:00 p.m.

On Friday, police were called to an apartment in the area of West Trail where it was reported that people could be heard yelling and screaming at each other and items being damaged inside. Police arrived and the investigation concluded that a female had assaulted her male partner during an argument. The female was arrested without incident and was later released on a promise to appear. Ministry of Children and Families was advised as there had been a young child in the home at the time of the incident. The investigation is continuing.


Police were called and advised about a possible fraud being attempted on Trail residents. The complainant stated that they had been informed via Facebook that they had won $100,000 in a contest. The Trail resident was told that in order to receive the winnings they had to send $1,000 to the contest holders. The complainant did not recall entering any contest like this and after providing minimal personal information, realized the contest was a scam and did not send any money. Trail RCMP would like to warn people of these types of scams and to be careful who they send information and /or money to.


On Feb. 10 police pulled over a driver of a truck in the downtown Trail area for a driving offence. The driver was known to the police officer and upon arriving at the window of the vehicle there was a strong odour of an illegal drug. The driver was known to be on probation conditions that prohibited him from possessing illegal drugs and the male was informed that he was under arrest. The male choose to not co-operate with the police and struggled to run away from the police. The male was eventually taken into custody and released on a promise to appear to answer for his breach of probation. The male was also issued a violation ticket for speed relative to conditions, failure to produce a valid drivers licence and failure to display “N” sign.
