CPL. TERRY BEST/Stettler RCMP report

During the past week, Stettler RCMP responded to 52 calls for service.

On June 14, the detachment received a report of damage to a car in the 4300 block of 60 Street. As a result of the investigation, it is believed the vehicle, which was parked on the street, was struck by a youth riding a bicycle. The matter is under investigation.

On June 15, police responded to a complaint of an assault in the Grandview area. A 27-year-old man from Stettler is scheduled to appear in Provincial Court on August 11. No one was injured in the assault.

A 30-year-old man is facing a charge of impaired driving following a traffic stop near the down town area, in the early morning hours of June 18. He is scheduled to appear in Provincial Court on June 23 to speak to the charges.

A theft of a pump jack and damage to a well site in the Big Valley area was reported to police on June 18. The matter is under investigation.

A 32-year-old man from the Stettler area has been charged with impaired driving from an incident in the early morning hours of June 19.

With school almost over for another year, you can expect more children on their bicycles around town during the summer months. Police are asking drivers to be more attentive to them as they make their way around town. Often, children drive their bicycles across the road on the crosswalk which is dangerous. Police remind adults and ask parents to tell their children that the proper way to cross the street with a bicycle is to get off and walk across if they want to use a crosswalk. If you ride your bicycle across the street, the bicycle is considered a vehicle and subject to all the rules of the road like any other vehicle and do not have the right of way in an intersection.

Anyone with information which would assist police in solving these or any other crime is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1 800 222 TIPS or send an email to www.tipsubmit.com. Crimestoppers is completely anonymous and pays cash for information that leads to an arrest or the recovery of stolen property.
