Driver impaired at crash

A woman is banned from driving for 90 days and has had her vehicle impounded for 30 days after police found she was driving while impaired on July 4, at about 4:30 p.m. RCMP were dispatched to a car accident where injuries had been involved along the Mamquam Forest Service Road. The police investigation found the driver had been drinking to an extent she failed two approved screening device breath samples. "The Immediate Roadside Prohibition program is one of the tools used by police to remove impaired drivers off roadways and keep our roads and communities safe," Squamish RCMP said in a news release.

Bikes stolen

On July 2, at about 1 p.m., two people had their bikes stolen from the Smoke Bluffs area. One bike was recovered. The second bike that is still missing was secured but had the lock cut. It is a black Specialized hardtail and has a broken left brake lever.

In a separate theft on June 30, a resident left her Cramerotti bike outside Corsa Cycles while she went inside, and the bike was gone on her return. The bike was not locked.

RCMP members searched for and then found the bike, and subsequently arrested a man known to police for possession of stolen property. The man has no ties, support, or employment in Squamish and was placed on conditions not to be in the community.

Boat stolen

An inflatable boat and trailer were stolen from a home in the 39000-block of Discovery Way on July 2, at about 3:40 p.m. The 14-foot inflatable watercraft has a centre console and 40-horsepower black Mercury outboard motor attached.

Officers have since followed up to collect more evidence.

On July 2, a man's wedding ring was found in the bush at the former Squamish Budget Inn downtown. It was turned in to the RCMP, where it will be kept for 90 days. The rightful owner can contact the Squamish detachment to identify the jewelry. If the owner does not come forward, the ring will be disposed of.
