Rocky Mountain House RCMP were busy last week responding to numerous calls.

The morning of Thursday, Feb. 15, Mounties responded to a report of a theft of a PS3 gaming console overnight at the O’Chiese First Nation.

Later that day, there was a reported assault also at O’Chiese.

On the evening of Friday the 16th, police say there responded an intoxicated male who was bleeding after a fall in the downtown area. The man was transported to hospital for stitches, but was later arrested after allegedly causing a disturbance by swearing and being uncooperative.

Shortly before 6 a.m. on the 17th, police responded to the theft of a pick-up truck from a residence on the town’s north end. The owner attempted to stop the culprits, but was unsuccessful. Suspects reportedly fled northbound. The vehicle is a white 2003 GMS Sierra with Alberta plate BDB2964.

Around 3 p.m. that day, RCMP stopped a pick-up truck for not having mud flaps. The driver had been drinking, police say, and he was issued a 30 day driving suspension, while his vehicle was seized for seven days.

Just after 8 p.m. on Feb. 18, police went to a call about an assault at O’Chiese First Nation. A male was arrested and charged accordingly.

The next night, there was a similar call around the same time also at O’Chiese. Police attended and arrested a female. Charges are pending.

On Feb. 20, Mounties attended a call from a local drinking establishment about an intoxicated male throwing pool balls and punching the front door, breaking the glass in the process. The male left in a vehicle before police could arrive.

In addition, Rocky RCMP responded to four collisions with deer, one with a moose, one with a raven, and six other MVCs.  There were two 911 hang-ups and four false alarms.
