The RCMP responded to reports of an assault at 12:21 a.m. on Nov. 21 and soon after spotted a man with clothes that matched the description of the suspect. When they approached the man he allegedly dropped a bag on the ground. A bag was later proved to contain cocaine and ecstasy.

The suspect was arrested and is being charged with Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking. There are no charges related to the assault.

The Pemberton RCMP are going over security footage after a restaurant was broken into on the night of Nov. 21/morning of Nov. 22. The thief gained entry by removing the outside hinges on a door. He then proceeded to steal bottles of alcohol, a laptop computer and around $350 in rolled coins.

 

RCMP sort out on-hill brawl

The RCMP are investigating an on-hill brawl on Nov. 23 involving a snowboarder and skier. The two parties are telling conflicting stories. But what isn't in doubt is that a snowboarder tackled another man and separated his shoulder in the process. The snowboarder got up when he realized the other man was injured.

 

Squamish sex assault suspect arrested

Following a Canada-wide hunt, sex assault and robbery suspect Shaun Richard Funk was arrested in Regina on Nov. 18.

Funk is accused of entering the vehicle of a Kamloops woman who was sleeping in her car at Brennan Park Recreation Centre in Squamish, sexually assaulting her and forcing her to drive him to Burnaby. There he allegedly robbed her and assaulted her a second time. Funk, 35, was identified as a suspect two weeks ago.

The Squamish incident took place overnight on Aug. 28. The victim's ordeal ended at 4 a.m. on Aug. 29 when Funk fled her vehicle on foot.

Funk is also suspected in an attack in Ladysmith on Sept. 26 where he allegedly broke into the home of a woman in her 50s and assaulted her. The police believe he also attempted to break into another residence that night but fled before committing a crime.
