Police Report

The Fort St. James RCMP had a fairly quiet week recently, with only a couple of cases of note.

  • Oct. 31, 2011 6:00 p.m.

On October 13 at 2:30 p.m., a man and his daughter were reportedly hit by a vehicle backing up at the Petro Canada station as they stood next to their bicycle.

The two were not injured, but the driver allegedly drove away after hitting the bicycle and the two people.

The police are still investigating but do believe they know who the driver was.

Later the same day, another erratic driver was reported just before 6 p.m..

Officers located the vehicle in a patrol, but when they attempted to stop the driver near the Petro Canada station, the driver is said to have exited the vehicle and walked away after being asked to remain in the vehicle.

He was then reportedly located at a nearby home, forcing entry, and was taken into custody after exiting the home out the back.

The man reportedly gave a false name to the officers, but was later identified and charged. Alcohol was considered a factor in the incident.
