BONNYVILLE – A hang-up call to 911 recently led Bonnyville RCMP to an arrest.
The local detachment received a 911 call hang up on Feb. 15 and immediately called the number back. Police spoke with a male who said he had been threatened with a knife.
“The victim stated that a female, who was an acquaintance of his, had entered his residence without his knowledge,” explained Bonnyville RCMP Sgt. Kim Hillier. “A verbal altercation occurred then the female had cut him on his forehead with a knife that she had with her.”
Members attended the scene, and located and arrested the female. She was later released on an undertaking with a court date of April 27.
Intoxicated woman causes a disturbance
A complaint was received by RCMP on Feb. 12 of an intoxicated woman in the complainant’s residence, who was said to be causing a disturbance.
Officers attended and located a 25-year-old woman from St. Paul who was then found to be in contravention of a current release order. She was arrested for breaching her conditions.
“During the search incidental to arrest, the members located a small amount of suspected methamphetamine and she was charged accordingly,” Hillier noted.
The woman was released on an additional undertaking with a new court day of May 4.
Public encouraged to make reports
“Police received a complaint from a rural resident to advise that a male, who has an extensive history of property crimes, was seen driving on the complainant’s property,” said Hillier.
“Police immediately attended the area and kept up focused patrols in an attempt to locate the subject of the complaint."
Athough the member wasn’t able to locate the suspect, "It’s important for the public to make reports when these situations occur, as it provides police (the) information needed to target specific areas and lessen the probability of a theft occurring.”
Attempted car theft
A visitor to the area called RCMP on Feb. 15 to report that his vehicle was the target of an attempted theft at the Western Budget Motel.
“His vehicle’s ignition was broken and the driver's handle was damaged. The suspects stole his diesel programmer,” Hillier said.
The investigation into the crime is ongoing.
Holiday property broken into
Hillier said police received a call from Edmonton on Feb. 18 regarding a rural holiday property that had been broken into.
When members attended the property, they cleared the residence to ensure the suspects weren’t still in the house.
The investigation is ongoing and it’s unknown at this time what may be missing or stolen from the property, Hillier stated.
License plate taken
An investigation is ongoing after a report came in on Feb. 16 that a complainant's license plate was stolen off his car on 43rd St.
