March 2

•When police investigated a theft of automobile plates, they were located on another vehicle near the scene of the theft. The driver was preparing to leave for Alberta and instead received tickets for having no insurance or registration.

•Police could not locate a female driver reported to be doing over 100 km/h on Erickson Road.

•The proud owner of a new Dodge pickup on Northwest Boulevard was less than happy to find that the truck had been damaged in a hit and run, probably in a parking lot.

•Youths were reported to be throwing snowballs at passing vehicles near Canyon Street and 16th Avenue.

•He had just bought a new vehicle and thought he’d test out its speed, a driver reported after he was stopped on Highway 3 near Nick’s Island Road, having been clocked at 170 km/h. He got a speeding ticket and the vehicle was impounded for seven days, which will give him time to think about its performance.

•Two intoxicated males who were fighting on Dogwood Street did not co-operate with police. One was taken to his mother’s house to prevent a recurrence of the battle.
