On Tuesday police were called to the office of a health services provider in Trail where a male had come to the office breaching a court order for them to not attend there. The male was located, arrested and brought before a Judicial Justice of the Peace via telephone where he was held in custody until today when he would be brought before a judge in court.

On Monday, police were called to a Trail residence where two roommates had been arguing over a pending move of one of them and the subsequent cable bill. Both parties were very agitated and police were required to attend to ensure both parties remained calm and no one was going to get hurt. The parties discussed their issues and agreed to separate and stay away from each other until they moved apart.

On Sunday at 12:49 a.m., members of the Trail Crime Reduction Unit arrested a 31-year-old male for Possession of Cocaine for the Purpose of Trafficking under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. The male was arrested by Crime Reduction Unit members shortly after leaving a downtown Trail business. Approximately 4 grams of cocaine and $1200 in cash was seized during the suspect’s arrest.

The male will appear in Rossland court in April, 2014.

On Jan. 30, there were several thefts from motor vehicles reported to have occurred overnight. Some licence plates were stolen and loose change taken from unlocked vehicles in the Glenmerry and Shavers Bench area of Trail.

Police would like to remind people to secure their vehicles at night and to not leave valuables in vehicles.  If anyone sees anyone suspicious please call the Trail RCMP.

On Jan. 28, police were asked to assist in the apprehension of an out-patient  working with local mental health service providers. This person was refusing to take their prescribed medication and the treating doctor signed an apprehension warrant so that the individual could be brought into the hospital for their own safety. Police attended the home and were able to speak with the person who then agreed to go to the hospital. This person was then able to receive the care that was best suited for them.
