Creston RCMP responded to 72 calls for service from May 21-27, Staff Sgt. Bob Gollan said on Monday.

May 21

•A male reported to be causing a disturbance at a Seventh Avenue North residence left before police arrived.

•A Wynndel resident dialed 911 by accident when he was attempting to program his phone to dial the number faster.

•Extensive damage was reported on a vehicle that collided with a deer on Highway 3A. Injuries to the deer were fatal.

•No injuries resulted when a vehicle went off the Highway 3 near Erickson Road and into a ditch.

•Police mediated a dispute between two females on Cory Road after responding to a call about an assault.

•A person reported to be missing in the Boswell area after leaving the Kootenanny music festival arrived home safely, having made a six-mile walk.

May 22

•When police investigated a complaint from Evans Road about a male revving his car, they learned he was doing mechanical work on the engine.

•Minor damage was sustained by a vehicle that collided with a deer on Highway 3.

•Vehicles parked in a Highway 3 yard had their windows smashed.

•A complaint about threats being made came from Payne Road.

•A complaint about two large dogs running loose on Indian Road was referred to the Regional District of Central Kootenay bylaw department. The case will not be solved easily, Gollan said, because the RCMP later learned that the RDCK does not have a dog bylaw in the area.

•Police assisted Red Deer RCMP by locating a person wanted in an assault investigation on Peters Road in Crawford Bay.

•The owner of a lost and found pony near Porthill was located.

•An abandoned vehicle was reported near Kitchener Bridge.

•Police are recommended criminal charges after arresting an adult female on Ninth Avenue South who is accused of making threats. She was released on conditions.

•When police investigated a second-hand report about harassing phone calls, the alleged victim claimed to know nothing about the problem. The person who made the report then also denied any knowledge.
