It was a busy week for the New Hazelton RCMP last week as they received a total of 90 calls.

On April 30th, a male and female reported they were staying at a hotel when two males arrived and threatened them and then the two suspects allegedly assaulted the male. The incident was apparently in regards to lost wages from a company that the victim is a supervisor for. The two suspects wanted the name of the company’s boss so they could get the money that they were owed. The males were driving a white pick up truck but no further descriptions were provided. The police are still investigating the occurrence.

Later on the same day the police assisted the ambulance with a person who had taken a variety of prescription medication because they stated they were depressed. Two days later on May 2nd, the RCMP received a call of a suicidal male who was located and transported  to the hospital for assessment and on May 3 the RCMP assisted the ambulance with a transport of a male to the hospital in Smithers. This brought the total to three complaints related and classified under the Mental Health Act that the RCMP assisted with.

Also on May 2, two males were arrested in the village of Kispiox for assault with a weapon. The males were intoxicated during the assault and were later released on a Promise To Appear with conditions.

The following day, May 3, a male was located hitchhiking and found to be breaching his recognizance. This male was later released by a J.J.P, with a 24 hour curfew.

On Sunday, May 6th the RCMP were very busy with complaints of intoxicated persons and disturbances which resulted in lodging 8 people in cells.
