Stolen Truck Recovered and Suspect Arrested: 2022-11893
On Nov 14, a man reported that his pickup truck had been stolen sometime over the weekend from a car dealership while it had gone in for service. Terrace RCMP made efforts to locate the stolen truck and found it unoccupied in a local hotel parking lot a short time later. The suspect was identified through video surveillance and located outside a nearby business where officers arrested him for theft of motor vehicle. A key fob to the stolen truck was found in the possession of the suspect. The man was taken to Terrace cells to be processed and later released on an Undertaking with a number of conditions. The results of the investigation are being forwarded to BC Prosecution Services for consideration of charges.

Excessive Speed Results in Vehicle Impound and Violation Ticket: 2022-11934
On the afternoon of November 15, while conducting speed enforcement at the intersection of Halliwell Ave and Munroe Street, a black sedan was heard accelerating and seen travelling west toward Kalum Lake Rd. The officer observed the radar reading to be 98 km/hour while the vehicle was in a 50 km/hr zone. The officer conducted a traffic stop and confirmed the identity of the driver. The vehicle was impounded for seven days and the driver was issued a violation ticket for excessive speed.

Fatal Collision between Truck and Pedestrian: 2022-12029
On the afternoon of November 18, a pickup truck collided with a pedestrian at the intersection of Kalum Street and Lakelse Avenue in Terrace. Lifesaving attempts were made on scene by witnesses and emergency crews. Sadly, the man who was struck was pronounced deceased later that evening at Mills Memorial Hospital after he succumbed to the injuries sustained in the collision. Alcohol is not suspected to be a factor at this time. Terrace RCMP have launched an investigation into the matter and the Integrated Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Service (ICARS) is engaged.

Lighter Resembling a Firearm Causes Alarm: 2022-12032
On November 18, a witness observed a woman in a local fast food restaurant in possession of what appeared to be a firearm with bullets. Police attended the location and found a woman matching the description of the one reported. She was arrested for possession of a weapon and subsequently cooperated with police, advising that the item was actually a lighter. Police would like to issue a reminder that such items can cause great alarm to the public and police must respond to such reports with consideration of possible risks. Please leave items like this at home rather than bringing them into public places.

Police Seek Video Surveillance after Pickup Crashes into House: 2022-12044
Terrace RCMP received a report of a pickup truck crashing into the side of a residence in the horseshoe at approximately 10:50 pm on Saturday, November 19. The crash caused significant damage to the house, breaking a window and the wall. Witnesses described the pickup as dark in colour with a white canopy and state that it left the scene at a high rate of speed travelling north on Munroe Street, turning east bound on McConnell Ave. The pickup is likely to have front end damage. Police are asking residents in the area of Munroe Street and McConnell Ave to check their surveillance cameras for the suspect vehicle (travelling north, then east) on November 19 around 10:50 pm. Anyone with information can call the Terrace Detachment at 250-638-7400.
