Squamish RCMP conducted foot patrols in Stan Clarke Park and located an intoxicated man on Oct. 9.
The man initially refused to identify himself, however, coupled with the limited information he provided and observations of his tattoos, police were able to positively identify him. Once identification was confirmed, it was learned that he was currently wanted on an outstanding warrant from Kelowna. The man was arrested on his outstanding warrant and issued a Promise to Appear in court.
In early August 2019, two bicycles were reported stolen from the back of a pickup truck at the Mountain Retreat Hotel.
In early October, one of those bicycles, a Rocky Mountain Instinct, came in for service at Corsa Cycles and the police were notified. Police recovered the bicycle from a residence in downtown Squamish and ultimately returned it to its rightful owner.
RCMP were called to investigate a "suspicious" rental RV and two men dressed all in black who were parked along Isleview Place in Lions Bay in the morning of Oct. 10. Police couldn't find anyone, however.
RCMP would like to encourage all citizens and neighbours to remain vigilant in their communities and to report any suspicious activity or persons.
