There were a low number of calls for RCMP the week of Feb. 8, with only 28 over the week of Feb. 8. An average week nets between 70 and 80 calls to service for Fort St. James RCMP, extreme cold temperatures were noted as a possible factor in low call volumes.

Feb. 8  9:42 p.m.

RCMP were dispatched to a residence on Lower Road on Nak’azdli Rserve.

A male homeowner had reported he woke up to find an unknown man passed out in his living room.

RCMP arrived at the residence and found the man in the home, on the floor next to the couch.

The man was reportedly intoxicated to the point he was not sure where he was and could not vocalize his own name.

The front door of the home had been damaged when the man entered, and he was arrested for break and enter.

The resident did not wish to press charges, so the suspect was released frm police custody when he was sober.

Feb. 8 11:23 p.m.

RCMP received a call from a male caller reporting another male had assaulted him with a bottle at a residence at Sunset Court.

The RCMP attended immediately and found the complainant with a small laceration above his right eye.

Police said the victim had been drinking and the man identified a suspect. His story did then change while waiting for the ambulance to attend, making it unclear exactly what happened.

The victim said he may have been assaulted by a group. Police patrolled looking for the suspect he initially identified, but no suspect was located and the victim did not want to pursue charges.

Feb. 9 at 2:10 a.m.

A female caller reported an intoxicated male was causing a disturbance on at her residence.

The female said the man was breaking things in the house and she wanted him removed.

The male was found to be under conditions not to consume alcohol or by within 50 km of Fort St. James.

Upon attending the residence, police said several people ran from the home.

Upon entering the residence, police said the suspect was located in the laundry room and when he was discovered, he tried to run from the police.

When he was being taken into custody, he reportedly resisted arrest and RCMP used pepper spray to subdue the suspect.

Kalen Joseph later appeared in Vanderhoof court on Feb. 11 and was charged with breach of probation, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.

Feb. 10 at 2:20 a.m.

A report from a male caller at an apartment at 752 Stuart Drive requested police attend an apartment in the building where a party had been going on for two or three days with loud music.

The resident of the apartment in question said the party was ending and was warned by police to keep the music down or face further action.
