Assault leads to much more
An assault on Saturday afternoon (June 6) led to the arrest of several persons and the recovery of a stolen vehicle.
At 3:38 p.m. RCMP were called to an assault on Ross Street in Kimberley; the subjects departed prior to police attendance. Less than 30 minutes later an officer saw the vehicle on Warren Avenue, he turned around and activated his emergency equipment, the vehicle turned off and appeared to be evading police as it made several turns until it reached a dead end.
Once the officer had the subjects in custody he learned the driver was prohibited from driving and the vehicle was stolen out of Beaumont, Alta. In the trunk police found several weapons including, six knives, a machete, and two baseball bats.
One female is still in custody and will appear on Cranbrook court today on charges of Possession of Stolen Property and Assault. Two other males were released on a Recognizance with $500 bail for court in July. All three subjects have no fixed address but are believed to have been from Alberta but have connections to Cranbrook and area.
