A 57 year old man was killed on Jan. 14 when his truck collided with a logging truck on Highway 118 about 12 kilometres south of Granisle, said RCMP Sgt. Rose.

Sgt. Rose says RCMP got the call at 10 a.m. and the highway was closed at the site of the crash at Shoulder Tower Road until 9 p.m. that night.

The cause of the accident is under investigation by Traffic Services in Smithers assisted by the collision reconstructionists from the Traffic Unit in Terrace.


During the Jan.14 night or Jan. 15 morning, more than 36 vehicles on Omineca Way were checked by someone looking to steal, said Sgt. Rose.

Sgt. Rose says a few things were stolen, including a few wallets and a camera, and the case is still under investigation, and anyone with information about suspicious activity is asked to call Houston RCMP at 250-845-2204 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Sgt. Rose reminds people to keep their vehicles locked when they are parked in their driveways and keep valuables out of sight.


A male was arrested for assault and unlawful confinement, holding someone in a home against their will, on Jan. 12, and will appear in court March 18, said Sgt. Rose.


Someone broke in and entered the Houston Ski Club Jan. 12, nothing was stolen but the door to the club house was damaged, said Sgt. Rose.

A minivan hit a moose Jan. 14 near Quick Road West, but no one was injured and the moose ran off uninjured as well, said Sgt. Rose.


From Jan. to March, Houston RCMP is deciding their priorities and what they will target for the next fiscal year, said Sgt. Rose.

Input from the community is important in developing the priorities, and anyone with suggestions, concerns or recommendations is asked to contact Sgt. Rose at 250-845-2204.
