RCMP and border services deport alien out of Canada

The male arrested March 8 by Houston RCMP and border services is being deported out of Canada.

The male arrested March 8 by Houston RCMP and border services is being deported out of Canada.

“He wasn’t who his passport said he was,” said RCMP Sgt. Rose.

Sgt. Rose says the male appeared before the immigration panel March 12, and will be deported today, March 20.

Two males were seen stealing from a vehicle in the 3000 block of Pearson Road at 10:30 p.m. March 9.

Sgt. Rose says the complainant called RCMP about the theft in progress, but the two thiefs took off and were not located by RCMP.

Both males have been identified by RCMP and the investigation is ongoing, said Sgt. Rose.

Sgt. Rose wants to remind people to lock their vehicles to prevent theft.

He says that looking back at RCMP files, they have not had anyone force entry into a vehicle in order to steal, but people steal because things are left visible in unlocked vehicles.

RCMP also remind people not to leave valuables visible in their vehicles, and Sgt. Rose says they will be advertising the need to lock vehicles April and May, and in June they will find unlocked vehicles, lock them and leave formal notices on vehicle windshields as a reminder for people to lock their doors.

Sgt. Rose says that is part of their annual performance plan, and their goal is to decrease theft from vehicles by 20 per cent over the next year.

RCMP got a call just after 1:30 a.m. last week Tuesday about a male passed out behind the steering wheel of a running vehicle on the Rabbit Trail.

Sgt. Rose says the vehicle must have been in drive because when RCMP woke the male, his vehicle slowly ran into the RCMP vehicle.

The RCMP wasn’t damaged and the male’s vehicle got only minor damages.

The driver was arrested for driving while impaired, and brought to the RCMP station for a breath sample, which he refused to take, said Sgt. Rose.

Sgt. Rose says the male was charged, received a 90 day driving prohibition and his vehicle was towed.

RCMP on patrol last week Monday noticed a vehicle in the A&W drive thru just after 7 p.m. which was known to be owned by a prohibited driver.

Sgt. Rose says the driver was stopped, identified and arrested for driving while prohibited, and the vehicle was impounded for seven days.

RCMP arrested a male in breach of conditions after he called RCMP to check on his common-law spouse last week Tuesday.

Sgt. Rose says the male who called was impaired and breaching conditions not to be in that home, and now faces charges May 6.

RCMP followed up and checked the well-being of the female, and she was fine, Sgt. Rose said.

***

Last week Tuesday at 3:45 p.m., RCMP were called about two males selling electronics out of a grey van near 7-11.

Sgt. Rose says RCMP talked with the males, and they appeared to be legitimately selling electronics for a company from Quebec.

The same males were checked in Vanderhoof and it appears that their property was not stolen, Sgt. Rose said.

RCMP are enhancing their enforcement against prolific offenders and Sgt. Rose says that since they’ve started that focused enforcement in January, five out of the seven prolific offenders have been arrested and charged.
