Neighours help fight fire
When a house fire broke out on Magee Road in the Squamish Valley, the RCMP and neighbours came to help. On Aug. 10, the police organized the efforts to fire the fire, while community members brought their own trucks to pump water and use a water tank. In a press release, the RCMP said the fire was not suspicious.
Suspicious person poses as house cleaner
On Aug. 10, someone reported a white woman trying to enter a residence in the 1000 block of Jay Crescent in the Garibaldi Highlands. A neighbour confronted the woman, who was described as in her 20s and 5 foot 8 inches. The woman told the neighbour she was a house cleaner, but when the neighbour contacted the homeowner, no cleaning service had been arranged. Police were unable to locate the woman, believed to be associated with a white Chevrolet Tracker.
Impaired driver caught
Early Aug. 10, RCMP were called about an impaired driver on Highway 99, near Valley Drive. Police officers found the Ford Explorer, and began an impaired driving investigation after speaking with the driver. He was issued a 90-day roadside prohibition, and his Explorer was impounded for 30 days. The driver and passenger had been on their way to the city, and RCMP arranged a taxi for the pair.
RCMP search for graffiti tagger
After two similar graffiti tags appeared in late July on the Oceanfront Gateway sign and Howe Sound Brewing pub, and reported to Squamish RCMP on Aug. 12, police are asking for public assistance. They believe the tagger is the same person, and encourage anyone with information, or who see new graffiti in Squamish, to notify the police.
