Columbia Valley RCMP Report
Cram the Boat
One of the wives at the Columbia Valley RCMP Detachment wisely recommended that on April 16, at my retirement dinner, rather than “Cram the Cruiser” my last kick at the can should be “Cram the boat.”
Thanks to Lori at the Sign place who once again donated her time and material for a community cause, and made a “Cram the Boat” sign. Many thanks, Lori.
My retirement dinner is going to be held at Copper Point Resort on Apr. 16, 6pm community members in Golden and the Valley are invited to attend. Tickets can be purchased at the resort. The plan is to have my boat parked in front of the resort. I would appreciate it if locals attending Cram the Boat. Columbia Valley Food Bank volunteers will be on hand to take it away; the food not the boat. And when loading the boat be gentle no scratches. Meagan; good idea.
Fail to yield charge in crash

On Feb. 18, RCMP attended to a complaint of assault/disturbance at a residence in the 100 block of Capilo Way. An intoxicated male was located on the highway advising he was assaulted.

Police suggested that they might want to consider stopping drinking for the remainder of the evening.

Released to roommates

Hockey parents’ ruckus at game’s end
At 6:53 p.m. on Feb. 20, police responded to a complaint of a number of parents involved in a verbal and physical confrontation at the end of a midget hockey game. A number of allegations were made from parents of Creston players and parents of Golden players. Statements are being obtained in attempts to gather the facts. Incident seems to have started when Creston parents took their frustration out on the referee. Have to love hockey. The investigation is continuing.

At 10:35 p.m. on Feb. 20, detachment officers attended to a complaint of Break Enter and Theft in the 4800 block of Timber Ridge. A door was kicked in allowing entry. Investigation is continuing to determine if any items stolen.
‘Corruption’ within CVOTH
S/Sgt Shehovac received an anonymous complaint of a massive corruption and fraud issue that has been ongoing with the (CVOTHA), Columbia Valley Old Timer Hockey Association involving the president of the league, Brendon Donahue, and his pent up frustration with the unbeaten 21-0 Huckleberry Hawks.
League president has been accused of approaching the head ref of the league, Cory Olson, and bribing Olson with a large sum of cash to keep Huckleberry top player Kirk Dubielewicz in the penalty box, stating the Hawks need to be taught some humility.
Olson has come forward and confirmed the allegation and now fearing retribution from the president for cooperating with the investigation will be placed under police protection and moved to an undisclosed location in Canal Flats. He has requested above the pub.
Shehovac informed the complainant that he is fully aware of the Dubielewicz gang and their stranglehold on hockey in the valley. Mother has firm control of the arena and Father does some money laundering for the Columbia Valley Rockies. Detachment is well aware that the father Roger launders his money purchasing weird items at garage sales and sells them for a much higher price.
It was further learned that the president of the league is looking to hire someone to do the Tonya Harding thing on Kirk to slow him down. Hearing this, the detachment has a duty to warn. So Kirk, take this as your warning. Suggest you throw a game.
