Station Hill Road Checks
Lillooet RCMP members conducted a road check near the top of Station Hill in which approximately 150 vehicles passed through. One driver received a 24hour suspension and a small amount of marijuana was seized.
A vehicle with Alberta licence plates was stopped near 6th Ave and Park Drive after police observed it driving the wrong way down a one way street. The female driver showed symptoms of impairment by alcohol and was given a roadside screening device test. Upon failing the test, subsequent samples of her breath were taken and the Detachment. Based on the results of those tests, the female was released with a court date later this fall to answer to a charge of impaired operation of a motor vehicle.
Roadside screening failed
On the evening of Sept. 9, Lillooet RCMP were advised of a possible impaired driver near Main St. Patrols were conducted and a vehicle matching the description given was stopped. The driver showed signs of impairment and was given the roadside screening device test. Upon failing the test, the driver's licence was seized, he was given a 90 day driving prohibition, and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days.
Plants seized, one arrested
With the assistance of the Department of Fisheries and the RCMP helicopter, Lillooet RCMP located a small marihuana grow operation along Hwy 99 South. 22 Marijuana plants were seized and one male was arrested and released pending further investigation.
Reckless behaviour can be deadly
Lillooet RCMP were dispatched to a report of teenagers hanging off a moving CN train near the Recreation Center. Upon arrival no teens were located near the tracks. Police would like to remind our youth that grabbing onto any moving vehicle can be dangerous and/or fatal. A moment's reckless decision can last a lifetime.
