KAMSACK — Kamsack RCMP members got a call saying that there was a fight going on at a residence.
When police arrived, they were given the name of the male involved who was on warrant. The male who made the call was watching the house as the altercation involved his sister.
Due to a good statement, among other factors, Kamsack RCMP were able to get a warrant to enter the house. The main floor of the house was cleared but no one was found. Later a hatch was discovered leading to a crawl space, where the male was found hiding. He was apprehended without incident.
Kamsack RCMP responded to a call of a male in distress. The male in question was banging on doors in Kamsack looking for help as he was bear sprayed. Police arrived and the male was OK, but refused to co-operate with police about the bear spray. He just needed to get his eyes flushed out by EMS.
He wanted to go back to Manitoba where he currently lives but after he was cleared by EMS, he was then taken into custody and his trip back home was delayed due to his having an outstanding arrest warrant out of Saskatchewan.
During the storm two weeks ago, Kamsack RCMP attended a single motor vehicle collision between a black bear and a pick-up truck.
The driver was making his way north on Highway 8 through the storm which was difficult for visibility, it being night. This prevented him from being able to notice the bear, which he then hit and killed. Luckily, no one in the vehicle was seriously injured but the truck was undrivable.
Kamsack RCMP responded to a call of a woman driving impaired.
Police discovered the woman had driven to Kamsack from a local RM and had just dropped off her child to her ex-partner at his worksite. Police located the female passed out at a gas station.
Police gave her a roadside alcohol demand which the female failed after she had been brought back to the detachment for a breath test. The female blew nearly three times over the legal limit and was charged for impaired driving. Her vehicle was impounded and her driver’s license was suspended indefinitely. Child and Family Services were notified due to the risk placed on her child while she had been driving impaired.
Kamsack RCMP responded to 56 calls from July 31 to Aug. 7. This includes five mischief calls, three assault-related calls, five disturbing the peace calls, three suspicious person calls, two fires, as well as a handful of other occurrences.
