As Police Week unfolds, RCMP Staff Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky is continuing to provide the community with a run down of the daily events Revelstoke’s officers deal with.
“Revelstoke is a great place to live, but there are always incidents that happen in a community, many that most people are unaware of,” he said. “Although Revelstoke is a very safe community, it is important to protect oneself and property by locking doors, using motion sensors and alarms, and driving defensively.”
Here is a list of the Mounties’ newly opened files from Monday, May 11 to mid-day on Tuesday, May 12:
2015-1336 – Found Bike
At approximately 3:30 pm on Monday May 11 the Revelstoke RCMP were requested to pick up a bike which was left at a local hotel. A male left the bike there and has not returned to retrieve it. It is entered as found property and will be held for 90 days and then either returned to the finder or provided to the City of Revelstoke for auction.
