It was a busy August long weekend for the Revelstoke RCMP, with more than 80 service calls from Friday to Monday.

Calls ranged from everything from misdials to public drunkenness to motor vehicle incidents to drug seizures.

Here’s the breakdown from Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky:

“There were 19 persons lodged into cells for public intoxication. Several fights, assaults and causing disturbances situations were attended to. Two abandoned 911 calls were received and deemed false. Police also aided with several medical distress complaints, a trespassing, three noise complaints, many lost and found property reports, several mischief complaints involving vehicles and city property, as well as five drug seizures. Several youth were located in city parks consuming alcohol and going through campsites. 32 complaints of erratic drivers were received.

“In addition police assisted with investigating three motor vehicle collisions over the weekend. Complaints were also received of persons jumping off the bridges into the Columbia River. A theft of a vehicle incident was also investigated resulting in up coming court proceedings for an adult male. A domestic dispute will also see court proceedings upcoming. Finally two impaired driving investigations occurred over the weekend.”

The detachment receives an average of 10 calls per day, making the weekend twice as busy as usual.

“The Revelstoke RCMP would like to thank the community for the continued support and remind drivers to pull over to the far right when being passed by emergency vehicles operating with lights and sirens,” he concluded.
