The man had been hired by an organization to complete civil contract work for them in the past year, and through a series of events, was fired by the group. The man was under the belief that he should be receiving a bonus from the organization in relation to the work he had done. The man was angry, threatening the manager and saying that he would gun down the manager and then take his own life by a specific time that day. Police made patrols of the area without locating the man by the time he had specified and no threats had been carried out. The man was located the next day and arrested.

• Traffic Stop with Uncooperative woman – File 2021-3467
On Saturday, April 24, 2021, Terrace RCMP were conducting routine traffic enforcement on a local area highway and observed a driving infraction. One officer made a traffic stop with the vehicle in question. The driver was the only occupant in the vehicle. The woman was uncooperative with providing her name and date of birth initially, while being verbally aggressive with the officer. She eventually provided the information and the officer returned to the police vehicle to complete a violation ticket. While doing so, the woman got out of her vehicle and began to walk away, not following direction from the officer to stay in her vehicle. The woman then turned, coming toward the police vehicle. The officer exited the vehicle advising her that she was under arrest for obstruction. While attempting to place the woman in hand cuffs, she became combative, resisted arrest and failed to follow direction. During the arrest, she yelled and screamed for help from passing motorists and was eventually placed in the rear of the police vehicle. The woman was released from police custody after being served a violation ticket and was given a court date, facing charges for obstruction and assaulting a police officer.

• Yard Fire – File 2021-3472

The report received was that a fifth wheel trailer, a truck, and other items in the yard were on fire and that a vehicle full of children was on the property as well. Emergency responders confirmed that only a man and woman were at the property (no children) and both were safe. The couple had enjoyed a campfire earlier that day, then left the property to go for a walk, unaware that the fire was not completely out. Upon their return, they found the campfire had spread. The Fire department extinguished the fire and no one was harmed.
