The Terrace RCMP responded to approximately 254 calls between March 26 and April 1, 2022. Below are just a few highlights of calls for service received:
On March 26, RCMP received an abandoned 911 call. Someone could be heard crying on the line, however the call was disconnected. Officers were able to determine the origin of the call and attended to a man who was overdosing. Paramedics were already on scene administering care to the man. RCMP assisted in getting the man to ambulance to be transported to a local hospital for further medical treatment.
On March 26, RCMP conducted a traffic stop with a vehicle after receiving reports that the driver may be impaired. The man driving the vehicle did not show signs of impairment however, was found to have an active warrant out of Vancouver for an unrelated driving offence. The officer arrested the man for the warrant and he was later released with a new court date.
While conducting regular patrols, an officer observed a passenger vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed in Terrace. The officer conducted a traffic stop and while speaking with the driver, could smell a strong odour of liquor on the man’s breath. A sample of his breath was obtained using an approved screening device which resulted in a FAIL. The man was served with a 90-day driving prohibition, and vehicle impound for 30 days as well as a ticket for
drive contrary to restrictions.
On March 28, police received a report of a pickup which had been stolen during the night from a commercial property on Keith Ave. A separate report was received later of a hit and run involving the same vehicle. And another report of an erratic driver, again with the stolen truck. It was located later that day at a residence in Terrace. Police arrested a man from inside the residence for possession of stolen property and driving while prohibited. He was later released from Police custody with a court date to deal with the proposed charges as well as a violation ticket.
On April 1, police received a report of a robbery at a local sports store. Two security officers had observed a man walk out of the sports store in possession of stolen items. The security officers detained the man for theft, however he pulled a box cutter style knife on the officers. The security officers were able to safely remove the knife from the man and physically restrain him until police arrived. The man was arrested and remanded in custody to appear in court. Charges were approved for Assault with a weapon (x2), Weapons Possession, Theft Under $5000, and Breach of an Undertaking.
