Police Week continues with more investigations of interest and the following observation by RCMP Staff Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky:
“As the long weekend nears, the Trans-Canada Highway will be getting busier. As can be noted by the number of erratic driving complaints we have received, there are a lot of drivers who do not respect the safety of others. The RCMP encourage drivers to drive with care, watch out for wildlife on the roads, and drive to the posted speed limit.”
Now, here’s a list of the case files opened on Tuesday and during the early part of Wednesday:
