RCMP report mischief in town

RCMP dealt with theft, vandalism and tire slashing over the past few weeks

Someone vandalized and broke the Pleasant Valley Motel “No Vacancy” sign on Dec. 13 and RCMP have no suspects for the case, said RCMP Sgt. Rose.

Anyone with information is asked to call Houston RCMP at 250-845-2204 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.


A 14-foot white fibreglass starcraft boat was stolen on Dec. 14, then recovered on Dec. 17 in Smithers and no charges have been laid, said Sgt. Rose.


Truck tires were slashed in the parking lot at 3325 Hagman Crescent during the night before Dec. 17, said Sgt. Rose.

RCMP have no suspects and anyone with information is asked to call Houston RCMP at 250-845-2204 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.


Sgt. Rose says more tires were slashed at the Houston arena on Dec. 18, and again RCMP have no suspects or witnesses and ask anyone with information to call Houston RCMP or Crime Stoppers.


A vehicle in the parking lot at 3122 Hagman Crescent was vandalized on Dec. 23, covered with a yellow, cake-like substance, which was washed off without damage, Sgt. Rose said, adding that again, anyone with information is asked to call Houston RCMP or Crime Stoppers.


Someone stole money from a vehicle near Pearson Road at 2 a.m. on Dec. 24, but fresh snowfall allowed RCMP to track the suspect to a unit in a Houston trailer park and arrest them for theft, said Sgt. Rose.

Sgt. Rose says the accused had some of the money on them but had spent some of it already, so the complainant didn’t press charges but asked that the suspect pay restitution.
