The Terrace RCMP responded to approximately 272 calls between January 17 and 24, 2022. Below are just a few highlights of calls for service received:
RCMP attended two structure fires in two separate areas of Thornhill. They appear to be unrelated. One fire in lower Thornhill occurred on January 17, 2022, involving a detached shop on the property where a woodstove had been in use. The other occurred early on January 18, 2022, and involved a residence near the Queensway area. In both cases, no one was injured. Police are investigating the occurrences to determine if criminality is a factor. If you have any information about this crime contact the Terrace RCMP.
On January 18, 2022, three individuals failed to attend court as directed on unrelated matters. Warrants were issued as a result. Police will make attempts to locate and execute these warrants.
In the early hours of January 23, 2022, RCMP received a report of a vehicle in a ditch near an intersection on Kenny Street where the driver was unresponsive. Police attended the scene and were able to rouse the man who awoke with slurred speech and an odour of liquor on him. When the man refused to provide a breath sample, he was arrested and issued a 90-day driving prohibition and his vehicle was impounded. The man was taken to cells for processing and was released when sober. Following his release, the man caused damage to a police vehicle and was arrested for mischief and released with a court date for that matter.
During the week of January 17 to 24, 2022, Police continue to monitor individuals who are currently bound by court orders to abide by curfews. Approximately 20 curfew checks on these individuals were conducted by officers during this time to monitor compliance.
On January 21, RCMP received a report from a concerned citizen of a female hitchhiking east of Terrace on Highway 16. Police attended and located the woman who stated she was walking to Houston. The woman accepted a courtesy ride from police who brought her back into Terrace and connected her with services to assist her with some of her immediate and transportation needs.
