The Valemount and McBride detachment were kept busy over the past week responding to 36 calls to service. The files consisted of assaults, disturbances, break and enters, and impaired drivers.

On Friday April 18, the Valemount RCMP responded to a report of a domestic assault where the male had kicked in the door of a local hotel room and assaulted his girlfriend before leaving in his vehicle. Police quickly located the male driving his vehicle and was found to be driving under the influence of alcohol. The male was arrested for the assault and issued a 90 Day Immediate Driving Prohibition. The female was later arrested on outstanding warrants out of Vancouver Island. The male and female were both held in custody before being released with future court dates.

On Friday April 18, the Valemount RCMP received a complaint of a dog which had been shot while in its yard. The family dog was found deceased in the backyard as a result of a small calibre gun wound in the belly. “This is very alarming – that an individual would do harm to an innocent dog in its own yard. As you can imagine, the family is very upset over the loss of their loved pet,” said Cst. Walker. The RCMP is asking anyone that has information regarding this incident to contact the Valemount RCMP at 250-566-4466 or contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
