Furry Creek Golf and Country Club robbed


Briefs from the RCMP and Squamish Fire Rescue:

Sometime in the overnight hours between Sunday (Aug. 28) and Monday (Aug. 29), the Furry Creek Golf and Country Club was broken into by thieves.

Const. John Marinis of the Squamish RCMP reported the break-in happened between 10:30 p.m. and 6 a.m.

A number of items were taken, but Marinis didn't specify what went missing.A forensic identification team was brought to the clubhouse as part of the investigation into the theft.

Anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity is asked to call Const. Troy Goddard at the Squamish RCMP office or Marinis suggested leaving an anonymous tip by calling CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Unlicensed vehicle flees

During a routine patrol last Thursday (Aug. 25), RCMP noticed an older model Ford crew cab pickup truck with no license plates.

Const. Marinis said an effort was made to stop the vehicle near Highway 99 in the Squamish Valley Road area but it didn't stop. He said the vehicle wasn't pursued. It was found later in the area of Mile 11 of the Upper Squamish Valley Road under some power lines.

Marinis said the driver was also located but the suspect, a man police recognized, fled on foot and was not located. The matter remains under investigation.

Youths suspected in Valleycliffe dyke fire

Squamish Fire Rescue (SFR) members were called to put out a bonfire near Magnolia Crescent Saturday (Aug. 27) at 1 a.m. Fire Chief Ray Saurette said the fire was burning on the dyke running parallel to Magnolia. He said there were reports a number of young people were responsible for lighting the fire.

Saurette noted the forest fire hazard rating at the time of the fire was high.

Dock fire suspicious

Firefighters worked for two and a half hours to put out a fire at the dock on the Stawamus Reserve last Tuesday (Aug. 23)Saurette said the call came in at 5:34 p.m. and members of the Squamish Nation helped fight the fire. Squamish Emergency Program volunteers were called in to help with their boat.

According to Saurette, the fire at the older dock was suspicious. He said it was fortunate the whole dock wasn't lost.

Ropes to rescue crash victims

SFR members responded to a single vehicle accident between Britannia and Murrin Park last Wednesday (Aug. 24) at 7:26 p.m. The vehicle went over the embankment. Firefighters used ropes to get the people who were in the vehicle back up to the roadway.

That rescue came shortly after a two-vehicle accident just north of Murrin Park.
