With the Press-Herald being closed for holidays for two weeks earlier this month, the RCMP report for the week of August 4 to 10 was not printed in the paper, so we are including it here for the regular readers of the RCMP news.
- A Cut Knife man was arrested on a warrant after a traffic stop in Unity.
- A tan-coloured 2009 Ford F150 Supercrew cab truck was stolen from a farm site near Wilkie. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers or the RCMP.
- A driver of a car was charged under The Traffic Safety Act after rear-ending a grain trailer on the Reward grid. Minor injuries to the car occupants were reported.
- A Wilkie man was arrested on a warrant and transported for medical treatment. No charges were laid in this matter.
- An erratic driver was seen urinating on Highway 21 during the afternoon. Unity and Cut Knife RCMP looked for the suspect but he was not found.
- A heritage site sign was stolen near Revenue.
- An erratic driver was seen in Macklin and it was determined their licence has been previously suspended. The driver’s car was impounded to prevent future incidents.
- A stolen Ford F350 was recovered in Unity. It was processed for evidence and it is believed to be related to other thefts which resulted in charges the previous week.
- A child welfare concern at Macklin Lake was non-criminal and was referred to Child and Family Services.
- A dark blue “Grind” model BMX-style trick bicycle was stolen from 4th Avenue West in Unity. Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP or Crimestoppers. Found bicycles in Unity are turned in to the RCMP or the Unity Town Office so anyone looking for lost or stolen bicycles should check with both.
- A 20-year-old North Battleford man was charged with mischief and theft after allegedly damaging property and stealing recyclables.
- A paving company was reported for being possibly fraudulent; however the company representative attended the RCMP office and was seeking a business licence. Residents are urged to research any business to ensure it is legitimate before making a purchase. Reputable businesses will not use high-pressure sales tactics and should be able to offer references.
- Several houses and vehicles in Macklin were hit by eggs in the early morning hours of August 9th. A vehicle was also vandalized. Anyone with information is urged to contact RCMP or Crimestoppers.
- More suspicious youth were reported in Macklin the following night and an iPod was stolen from a parked vehicle. RCMP are looking to speak to some persons of interest in this matter.
- There was one suspicious person, one abandoned vehicle, two erratic drivers, one traffic hazard, one false 911 call and four false alarms reported to Unity/Wilkie/Macklin RCMP this week.
If you have any information regarding a crime please contact Unity RCMP at (306) 228-6300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
