DURING THE week of February 27th to March 5th, the New Hazelton RCMP responded to 78 calls for service.  A summary of some if the incidents are as follows:

On February 29, a member of the New Hazelton RCMP was conducting patrols on River Road in Hazelton and stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation.

The male driver could not produce a drivers license, and admitted that he did not hold a valid drivers license.

The male was given a violation ticket, and his vehicle has been impounded for 30 days.

On March 1, the New Hazelton RCMP received a complaint of a disturbance at a residence in Gitanmaax.

A male was reported to be intoxicated and trying to fight people.

Police responded to the complaint and located a small group of people drinking within the residence.

Two males were arrested for outstanding arrest warrants, one being a criminal code warrant and the other being a mental health warrant.

Two other people, a male and female, were also arrested.  The male was arrested for breaching his probation.  The female was arrested for breaching a recognizance.

All four of the arrested people were from the Hazelton area, and charges are pending for the two males and one female arrested for criminal code offences.  As the majority of the people at the party had been arrested, the party ended and there were no further problems at the residence.

Also on March 1, the New Hazelton RCMP attended a residence in Gitanmaax.

While at the residence the police located a male well known to police.  He was under the influence of alcohol, despite a court order which indicated he was to abstain from the consumption of alcohol.

The male was arrested for breaching his probation and later released on a Promise to Appear in court at a later date.
