Police got a report of an attempted theft at the Canfor mill at 2:40 a.m. March 1. Sgt. Rose says two suspects had tried to steal a fork lift but got stuck in the ditch near the entrance to the property. Two suspects were seen in the area but fled on foot into the woods on the east wide of Morice River Road. The file is under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact Houston RCMP at 250-845-2204 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.


Police got a report of a fight at a local liquor establishment at 1:40 a.m. March 2. Sgt. Rose says police found a female bleeding from her face, and various witnesses suggested there were three to four women involved in the assault. Due to lack of help from the victim, Sgt. Rose says charges are unlikely to be pursued. Police also diffused two other fights while on scene.

Police got a report of a disturbance on Park Lane at 7 a.m. March 2. Sgt. Rose says a male had forced his way into a home and threatened to fight with the occupant. When police arrived the allegedly intoxicated suspect was gone, and efforts to locate him were unsuccessful. Sgt. Rose says charges are not expected as the complainant refused to provide a statement.


Police arrested male and charged him for nine offences at 9 p.m. March 4. Sgt. Rose says police were called to a home on Eagle Nest Crescent in Tatchet, and found that an intoxicated male had forced his way into a home, threatened several people with a bottle before smashing the windshield of a vehicle in the driveway. The male had six outstanding arrest warrants, and was charged with nine new offences including break and enter, assault with a weapon, two counts of uttering threats, mischief under $5,000, and four counts of failing to comply with undertaking. The male was held in custody to face charges in Smithers.
