The tail-end of January saw Rosetown and Kyle RCMP dealing with a few vehicles that found their way off the road. The latest joint report covered the period between January 26 and February 1.
On January 26, Kyle RCMP located an abandoned vehicle near Highway 42, found to be off-the highway and not obstructing traffic. Later on that day, police travelled north on Highway 4 after news of a vehicle entering the ditch, as members located the vehicle and there were no injuries. Another abandoned vehicle call a few days later on January 30 had Rosetown RCMP on-scene on Highway 7, determining that there were no concerns with the vehicle.
Two other highway calls that had police concerned came on January 30 when a motor-vehicle-collision took place near Rosetown, reported for insurance purposes, and then on January 31 when Rosetown RCMP again responded to a collision that was reported for insurance.
A serious call back on January 27 saw Rosetown members travel out to Harris after reports of a suicidal individual, where they attended and transported a 22-year-old male to Rosetown Hospital for assessment. Later on that day Rosetown members were tasked with a wellbeing check, and spoke to the subject of complaint.
The last week of January was a busy one overall for local members. On January 25, Rosetown RCMP arrested a 48-year-old male from town after the failure to comply with undertaking conditions, later being released for court. A day later on January 26, Kyle RCMP would also catch word of a suspicious vehicle around Lacadena. Members patrolled but were unable to find any suspicious activity.
The other calls to end January included Rosetown RCMP giving a driver a verbal warning following an erratic driving complaint on January 29, and when faced with a similar instance the day earlier, unfortunately Kyle RCMP were unable to locate the vehicle in question.
Also on January 29, Rosetown RCMP dealt with a report of uttering threats, though there was insufficient evidence to proceed. Two more calls to end January resulted in a dog complaint coming out of Harris that is still currently under investigation, and a family dispute that was mediated in Kyle, both calls handled by the Rosetown detachment.
A pair of calls were noted for the start of February looking at the latest report. Early on February 1, Rosetown RCMP issued a warning after reports of erratic driving on Highway 4 near McGee. Later on that night, Kyle RCMP received a report of a sudden death in town as an 89-year-old male from Kyle was found deceased, and it was suspicious in nature.
The latest reporting period saw members deal with 68 traffic related charges, one 9-1-1 mis-dial call, and two false alarm calls. The Rosetown/Kyle detachment is also looking for help in solving an early-January break-in in Kyle, as you can see above, and in the related stories section below.
