Bonnyville RCMP respond to drug possession, hit and run

Last week Bonnyville RCMP responded to over 110 calls, some of which led to arrests while others remain open and pending.

Narcotics seized

A 21-year-old female was arrested by RCMP after she was found to be in possession of a controlled substance — Methamphetamine, or more commonly known as crystal meth.
She was subsequently charged with possession, and was also found to have two breaches of current release conditions, which are condition meant to help keep an arrested individual out of trouble by permitting no drugs or alcohol to be consumed.

Hit and run in parking lot

A hit and run was also reported after two vehicles collided in the Bonnyville Home Hardware parking lot, resulting in damages in excess of $2000.
The complainant reported the incident after the driver of the second vehicle, a 53-year-old male resident of Bonnyville, left the scene.
Investigators later determined that the male failed to return to the scene, and was subsequently issued a court summons for a Traffic Safety Act charge.

M.D. office mischief

Residents also reported a male in the back alley of 50th Avenue breaking into locked boxes outside of the Bonnyville M.D. building. RCMP officers patrolled and located the male, who is known to police, and subsequently arrested him for Mischief.
The man was released on an undertaking for court in Bonnyville scheduled on September 22.

Work truck taken

A truck has also been reported stolen — the work vehicle was parked at Extreme Oilfield overnight, and had disappeared by the next morning.
It’s described as a white 2001 Chevrolet Silverado with a blue steel deck and d-side tool boxes.
Officers are asking anyone with information to come forward. Bonnyville RCMP detachment can be reached at 780-343-7200.
