After recent complaints of graffiti within the Town of Kindersley the Kindersley RCMP conducted an investigation into the matter. As a result of the investigation a single charge of Mischief has been laid under section 430(4) of the Criminal Code. Under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act the party cannot be identified.
We invited Staff Seargeant with the Kindersley RCMP Kevin Peterson into our studio to discuss the now resolved situation, as graffiti is something that no community wants to see.
"That was a big news piece last week. Although it seems like a minor crime, it affects a lot of community members. We don't have a lot of that in our community, so we wanted to put a lot of effort into it, and luckily, we did get some information through help with the Town of Kindersley and our own investigators," said Peterson on how they worked together with the Town to identify the individual and eventually lay charges.
Peterson shared that the Town Office reached out to them directly for assistance locating the offender. The two have a good working relationship.
"We work well with the Town of Kindersley, and this was just another example of them giving us some information to help us with our investigation," said Peterson about the great partnership.
Between January 23rd to January 29th, Kindersley RCMP responded to 30 calls for service. These calls included, but were not limited to, four traffic collisions, one flight from police officer, four suspicious person calls check and one break and enter.
