POLICE BEAT: Arrests, impaireds and wildlife

On June 28 at 8:11 p.m., the Trail and Greater District Detachment RCMP received a report of a vehicle with Alberta plates that had several persons of interest travelling through the Trail area. The vehicle was stopped and a 16-year-old male and a 19-year-old male, both from Edmonton, were arrested for not being in compliance with their release conditions from the courts and several police agencies in Alberta. Both males had warrants for their arrest out of Alberta as well. The 16-year-old male was released and charges are being forwarded to Crown Counsel for approval. The 19-year-old male was remanded in custody for court in Rossland on July 4, 2019.


Over the Canada Day long weekend the Trail RCMP were very busy, responding to 62 calls for service. During this long weekend, check stops were set up in six different locations, resulting in four 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibitions for drivers who were found to be under the influence of alcohol. A three-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition for alcohol consumption and several minor traffic violations were also dealt with at the various check stops

Trail RCMP would like to remind drivers to arrange a safe ride home prior to consuming alcohol.


Trail RCMP responded to several collisions on local highways involving wildlife over the weekend as well. In the summer months, there is a significant increase in vehicle traffic as well as animals present on the roadways in BC. Please drive safely.
