Be wary: where there's one, there's often more deer

Deer on roads

During the past week, several deer were struck by vehicles on the highways in the region.

Due to the increased number of animals near the roadways at this time of the year, motorists are reminded to be extra cautious, particularly during the late afternoon/evening hours.

Bike turned in

On May 3, a small pink-coloured child’s bicycle was found at 100 Mile House Elementary School.

Two older boys were seen playing with the bike prior to its recovery. The boys abandoned the bike beside the school building, where it was then recovered and turned over to the RCMP.

It is requested the owner of this bicycle phone the 100 Mile House RCMP detachment at 250-395-2456 to claim this property.

Pub brawl

On May 2, police responded to the report of approximately six males fighting at the Iron Horse Pub in Lone Butte.

When RCMP arrived on scene the fight was already over and the crowd had disbanded. No charges will be sought in this matter.

The Iron Horse Pub staff closed up early and sent all patrons home for the night.


On April 29, 100 Mile RCMP responded to a complaint of a break-and-enter into a residence at Canim Lake.

Subsequent to police attendance, it was found the house which had been entered had been badly vandalized with an axe. Damages to the residence are estimated at approximately $20,000.

A suspect was later identified, located and arrested by police.

Charges of break-and-enter and mischief over $5,000 are being recommended against a 23-year-old 100 Mile House man.


Assistance sought

On May 3, a female driving a 2008 Ford Fusion was stopped at the intersection of Heron Ridge Road and Highway 97.
