Bonnyville RCMP respond 15 vehicle collisions in one-week period

Over the last seven days, RCMP laid charges against two men for possession of methamphetamine, removed a man from a residence who was defying a court order, while responding to an increase of volume of motor vehicle collisions due to poor road conditions.

BONNYVILLE – In a one-week period, from Nov. 12-19, 15 motor vehicle collisions were reported to the Bonnyville RCMP detachment.  

According to RCMP, one of the collisions resulted in injuries being sustained by occupants. 

RCMP S/Sgt. Sarah Parke would like to remind motorists of the importance of driving according to road conditions.   

“Give yourself extra time when pulling out onto a roadway and slow down sooner when approaching intersections,” states Parke. “Equally important is ensuring your vehicle is winter-ready. Set yourself up for success by taking the time to fully scrape frost off your entire windshield and side windows and ensure your tires are rated for winter roads.” 

Charges laid for crystal meth possession 

On Nov. 12 members of the Bonnyville RCMP were dispatched to a residence on the southwest end of Bonnyville for an “unrelated matter” and upon arresting a man, he was found to have methamphetamine on his person, according to RCMP.   

The 35-year-old man from Bonnyville is charged with possession of crystal meth and failing to comply with his probation order.  He is set to appear in Bonnyville Provincial Court on Dec. 7.   

“This scenario became DeJa'Vu for the Bonnyville RCMP the very next day when members attended the same location for an unrelated matter and arrested a 45-year-old male from Elk Point who also had Methamphetamine in his possession,” wrote Parke. 

The 45-year-old is being charged with possession of crystal meth and three counts of breaching his probation. He is set to appear on Nov. 23 in Bonnyville Provincial Court. 

RCMP remove unwanted man from residence 

On Nov. 18 at 9:30 p.m,. the Bonnyville RCMP were dispatched to a residence in Kehewin for a report of an unwanted intoxicated man.   

When members arrived on scene, located and arrested the man, police say he was found to be on probation and had court ordered conditions prohibiting him from being at that residence.   

The 43-year-old man from Kehewin faced charges of four counts of breaching his probation and three counts of failing to comply with a court order.   

He was set appear before a Justice for a bail hearing the following day on Nov. 19.
