Police report


During a routine traffic stop on Saturday night, police detected the smell of marijuana. All occupants denied having a controlled substance on them. Police dog Harvey was brought in, and found the drug on a 14-year-old female. The young offender turned over four grams of marijuana, a pipe and a bud buster. She was charged with possession of under 30 grams, and released for court. The youth was driven home and the charges were explained to her parents. Police were called to a local bar for three separate incidents. Two of them were for altercations. Combatants were separated when police arrived. The other was for a 32-year-old male who refused to leave the establishment. Once police arrived, the man left the bar. Halfway across the parking lot, the male started to swear at the officers and crossed the street. Members responded and the male started to swear at them again. As officers approached him he tried to run away. The male was arrested for public intoxication, and after his name was checked, he was also charged with breaching his conditions. He was released after appearing before a justice of the peace. Police responded to a loud party. The host was warned of the bylaw, and he shut the party down.
