Early Sunday morning, the RCMP responded to a complaint of vandalism to a vehicle in the 300 block of Montcalm Road, in Warfield.

A 24-year-old Montrose man allegedly damaged the side mirror of the vehicle and dented the vehicle before leaving the scene.

The officer located the man a short distance from the scene of the incident and arrested him. The man was suspected to be under the influence of alcohol at the time of arrest and was released when sober.

Trail police are forwarding a report to Crown counsel recommending one count of mischief under $5,000.

The accused is slated for a July appearance in the Rossland courthouse.

Runaway vessel

Sunday morning, the RCMP received a report of an unmanned 20-foot jet boat floating down the Columbia River near Sunningdale. The boat slipped into a back eddy near the Victoria Street Bridge and was successfully recovered by Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire Rescue.

The owner of the boat was contacted and attended the scene to recover his boat. He said the boat slipped away from his dock after a rope became loose.

Vehicle impounded

Sunday afternoon an officer was conducting traffic enforcement when he observed the driver of a white pickup travelling 120 km/h in a 70km/h zone on Highway 22 near Tadanac. The officer detained the man and his vehicle roadside.

The driver, a 24-year-old from Robson, was issued a $368 fine for excessive speed and had his vehicle impounded for up to seven days.

Drugs stolen

Saturday afternoon (May 13), the RCMP responded a break, enter, and theft into a residence in the 700 block of Drakes Road, in Rossland. A 28-year-old Rossland man discovered someone had broken open his door and allegedly stole his cannabis and psilocybin while he was away. The man admitted to selling small amounts of cannabis and psilocybin and suspected it could have be a rival drug trafficker. The matter was concluded to information as the officer could not assist the complainant any further.

“Is anyone else a little worried about some of people in the upcoming generation?” asks Wicentowich.
