CARLYLE - On March 8 at 7 a.m., the Carlyle RCMP received a call about debris in the middle of Highway 13 from a concerned traveller. 

The caller was concerned that someone may hit the debris and cause an accident or injury. The caller wasn’t concerned enough to stop and move the debris himself but just enough to call and leave a message for the police to attend. 

Don’t worry, when police attended nearly an hour later, the debris had been moved off the road and luckily hadn’t caused an accident or injury. Thanks to everyone who still does their civic duty to keep everyone as safe as possible. If you’re concerned enough to call you should be concerned enough to stop. 

I wish I could say this was a one-time incident, but it happens far too often. Don’t let your laziness prevent you from doing something that could prevent an accident.

The number of criminal record checks completed at the Carlyle RCMP detachment has really picked up recently. We are requesting that if you need a Criminal record check, you call the Carlyle RCMP at 306-453-6707 prior to attending and we can make you an appointment. Criminal Record Checks are completed at the detachment on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

We are restricted to the number of members of the public we are able to have in our building at one time, and we need to ensure proper sanitizing is completed before and after each visitor arrives at our front counter. Thank you for your co-operation.

The Carlyle RCMP was busy conducting traffic stops this week, issuing 31 tickets for speeding, inadequate lights and failing to have a driver’s licence to name a few. The highest ticket of the week for speeding was $296 for traveling 134 kilometres per hour in a 100 km/hr zone on Highway 13.

On March 7, the Carlyle RCMP stopped a 34-year-old man driving on Highway 9 near Carlyle.  He was suspended from driving and was operating an unregistered vehicle. Needless to say, the choice the male made to drive that day was an expensive one as he received two fines and had his vehicle towed.

I want to caution drivers who might be thinking of driving their vehicle without insurance. Lots of police vehicles now automatically scan licence plates while driving and notify police when they are unregistered or when the owner does not have a valid licence.

That same day, the RCMP located a vehicle that had gone off the road on Highway 9. The RCMP located the lone novice driver and determined that he was under the influence of drugs. The driver was issued a 60-day suspension and had his vehicle impounded. The 17-year-old driver also received a free one-night stay at the Carlyle RCMP’s all-inclusive resort where the rooms are bad but the food is worse.

On March 8, the Regina Police Service contacted the Carlyle RCMP and requested a male residing in Kisbey be located and arrested on several warrants. The Carlyle RCMP located the adult male and lodged him in Carlyle cells. He was then transported to Regina where he appeared in court on March 11 for his charges.

The following day, Carlyle RCMP stopped a vehicle that had a very badly cracked windshield.

“The officer was in udder disbelief when the driver advised he was on his way to the vet clinic when his passenger had tried to jump over the moon and smashed his windshield. The legen-dairy farmer was less than amoosed by the jerky beef.  The vet bill and a new windshield had milked him dry.”

On March 10, Carlyle RCMP received a call of an adult male highly intoxicated at a residence in the area. The male was keeping people awake in the residence by yelling and arguing. Due to the state of the male’s intoxication, occupants were scared that the male’s behaviour would escalate into something physical. RCMP attended and arrested the male to ensure the only thing abused that night was alcohol.

Also that day, the RCMP received a call of five intoxicated males outside a residence on the White Bear First Nations. The caller then stated that they had all entered a blue van and were driving in the area, drinking and driving. RCMP patrolled the area but were unable to locate the suspect vehicle.

On March 11, RCMP received a call from a male who was involved in a collision with a deer on Highway 13 near Manor. The driver’s 2004 Chevrolet Venture was not drivable and had to be towed from the scene. Luckily no one was hurt during the collision.
