During the same time period, 16 people were lodged in Terrace cells – seven of these people were lodged for intoxication.

Here are some of the calls responded to:

Vandalism to a business on Hwy 16. A youth was identified as being responsible for the damage. The family is dealing with the matter.

Theft of gas from a gas station on Hwy 16 on Friday night shortly after 11 p.m. The truck was a commercial Ford F-350 loaded with what appeared to be scrap metal. The man who pumped the gas was Caucasian and wearing blue overalls. The man who entered the business and distracted the employee was about 6 ft tall, 30 to 40 years of age, hickeys all over his neck, and was wearing a coral colored t-shirt, green jacket, and baseball cap.

Theft from an unlocked white 1997 Ford F-350 parked in the 3900 block of Old Lakelse Lake Dr. on January 8 or 9th. A Canadian Tire brand tool box, flashlight, and socket set were stolen. The rear licence plate decal was also stolen.

The Microsoft Virus scam. A person clicked on a link they believed to be a Microsoft tech link. The person then provided their credit card information for what they believed was antivirus maintenance. Several hundred dollars later and the addition of numerous viruses prompted the person to become leery as to the authenticity of the transaction. Credit cards were cancelled. Police spoke with the person.

Theft from an unlocked vehicle parked on Eby St. sometime during the night of Jan 12/13. A wallet containing various cards and ID and an iPhone were stolen.

A taxi delivered an intoxicated woman to the detachment where she was arrested. Checks determined that the 32-year-old woman was breaching two undertakings by consuming alcohol. Charges are being forwarded to Crown Counsel.

Police observed two women, ages 38 and 25, in breach of a no contact condition of an undertaking. Both women were arrested. Charges are being forwarded to Crown Counsel.

An intoxicated man causing a disturbance at a residence on Pear St. Checks determined that the man was breaching a conditional sentence order by consuming alcohol. The 53-year-old man was arrested and held for court.

Police conducted a curfew check. The person was not in the residence and therefore in breach of probation. The youth was arrested later in the night and is held for court.

A curfew check was conducted for two nights in a row. A man was not in his residence either night and therefore was in breach of a recognizance. Under investigation.

Assault. Police located a seriously injured man outside of a business on Greig Ave. BC Ambulance transported the man to Mills Memorial Hospital. Under investigation.

A grey Toyota Corolla hit the ditch and went down a steep embankment on Hwy 37 near Onion Lake. The driver was issued a driving suspension for being impaired by drug. No injuries.

Deceased 60-year-old man on Thomas St.

A white 2014 GMC Sierra collided with a moose on Hwy 16 east. The vehicle was completely destroyed and was towed. No injuries. The moose was nowhere to be seen.

An eastbound red 2008 Mazda 3 turned north and collided with a westbound black 2006 Pontiac G5 at the intersection of Keith Ave./Hwy 16 at the south end of the Sande Overpass. No injuries. Both vehicles were towed.
