A "suspicious abandoned bright pink Hummer reported in the RM of Glenside" was included in the final list of October for Biggar RCMP, and before you ask, no it wasn't a Barbie and Ken costume prop for Halloween. Instead the vehicle was later found unregistered, with the owner being located but not offering any explanation to the circumstances around it.
This report was the Biggar RCMP's first one in a couple of weeks. Staff SGT. Dereck Crozier noted 41 occurrences in all that police had to deal with, including 10 warnings and 13 traffic tickets. The most significant report saw a newer pickup truck in a hurry on Highway 14 east of Perdue, caught passing two semi’s at the same time at speeds excessing 35 km/h above the posted speed. That driver was given a ticket of $708 dollars via the provincial traffic enforcement unit.
Other calls during the week included, but were not limited too, members helping track down a hospital patient that decided to check themselves out. In that scenario the subject of complaint felt the need to find a bottle of alcohol rather than stay in a safe spot.
There was also report of suspicious activity at the local post office after hours. Another call shared that someone lost prescription narcotics somewhere between Biggar and Saskatoon. If found, police ask you turn it into them, or a pharmacy for disposal.
Over a 24-hour period, seven calls were made to Biggar RCMP involving drunken shenanigans from Perdue to Biggar. Police and EMS infiltrated a family gathering as everything was taken care of from there..
Reports of fraud during the week consisted of what police called the usual Publishers Clearing House, crypto currency sales, and email transfers for goods not received. There were also two alarm calls.
More than ever now with the snow falling, SGT. Crozier wants to make sure you 'Take Care out there!'
