On Sept. 24 at around 5:25 p.m., RCMP were told a group of motorcyclists were travelling northbound on Highway 99 and one of them crashed.

First responders rushed to the scene. 

The driver of the motorcycle was taken to Vancouver General Hospital with serious injuries.  

 

Laptop stolen

A laptop was allegedly stolen from a business on Cleveland Avenue on Sept. 29.

An employee told officers at about 1 p.m. that day, a customer took a silver, 15” MacBook Air,  with a “live long Squamish” sticker on the front, from behind the counter and ran out of the store.

The suspect was described as a South Asian male, 5’4”, thin build, a partial beard, wearing a baseball cap, and black jeans.

 

Probably just climbers

Someone called police to complain about a light on the backside of the Stawamus Chief on Sept. 24th at around 8 p.m.

The complainant didn’t see anything to indicate distress and was calling to report it.

RCMP say they receive calls about this throughout the year.

Climbers frequently camp overnight in this area, in which they use headlamps to see.  

 

Mystery meat solved

Turns out a scary-looking garbage bag full of blood, bones, and meat was a deer carcass.

The remains were left at a gas station on Government Road on Sept. 27, 11:55 p.m.
