Impaired driving crash

Squamish RCMP say a car crashed into a light pole at Pemberton Avenue and Cleveland Avenue, on Nov. 25.

Police labelled it an “impaired driving collision,” and the driver was taken to hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. 

Officers are investigating.

Driver banned

Police issued a 90-day driving prohibition to a possibly impaired driver and impounded a car.

On Nov. 25, officers made a traffic stop after being alerted to a possibly impaired driver at Highway 99 and Commercial Way.

Police say the individual appeared impaired but refused to provide breath samples.

Officers then issued the driver prohibition and impounded the car. 

Stolen vehicle 

Thieves stole a 2014 black Toyota Rav4 sometime between Nov. 23, 7 p.m. and Nov. 24, 8:40 a.m., police say

The car was located on the 38100-block of Sixth Avenue.

Inside the vehicle was a wallet with identification and bank cards. The bank cards were subsequently used in fraudulent transactions in Vancouver. 

The car owner has since cancelled their bank cards to prevent further fraud.

Snow tires stolen off car

Squamish RCMP are investigating a case where tires were stolen off a car parked on the 1100-block of Commercial Place.
