Loud ‘wall-shaking’ party leads to arrest

A noise complaint sent police to a Stettler residence on June 17, as the level of sound was so high that neighbours had a tough time.

A noise complaint sent police to a Stettler residence on Friday, June 17, as the level of sound was so high that neighbouring homes had their walls shaking, according to police.

Police arrived at the residence and found the owner, who was under conditions to abstain from possessing or consuming alcohol, to allegedly be impaired, Cpl. Cameron Russell said. The 29-year-old Stettler man was arrested, though not without incident.

“The accused resisted arrest,” Russell reported, but was eventually detained. He has since been charged with resisting arrest, causing a disturbance, and breaching conditions. He will appear in court in September.

Licence plate snafu leads to seizure, charges

Police stopped a 53-year-old Stettler woman late Thursday, June 16, after noticing her licence plates were not in order. The woman, who was driving a van, was found to be driving with a suspended licence and an unregistered vehicle. Since her licence had been previously revoked, the van was seized for 30 days, and she was hit with charges of misuse of a licence plate and driving with a suspended licence.

Impaired charge after motorcyclist stopped without helmet

A 34-year-old Stettler man had his motorcycle seized for 30 days after police observed him riding without a helmet near the Other Side early Sunday, June 19. After stopping the motorcyclist, police observed the rider was showing signs of impairment and tried to obtain a roadside breath sample, and was refused.

Subsequent investigation revealed the motorcyclist’s licence had been previously suspended, so the motorcycle was impounded for 30 days. He was also charged with impaired driving and refusal to provide a breath sample.
