Alberni RCMP busy for BC Day

Most of the calls for service involved individuals who had been consuming too much alcohol, Cpl. Amelia Hayden said.

The Port Alberni RCMP were kept busy this past long weekend. Most of the calls for service involved individuals who had been consuming too much alcohol, Cpl. Amelia Hayden said.

Police conducted two road blocks over the weekend as well as having dedicated traffic enforcement patrols. Many vehicles were checked with more than 30 tickets and 35 warnings issued, a 12-hour suspension issued and two vehicles towed.

“Members dealt with a duo involved in street racing,” Hayden said. “Their vehicles were towed and tickets issued to the drivers.”

Police also conducted a boat patrol on Great Central Lake on Sunday afternoon, partnering with conservation officers.

A motorcycle crash on Highway 4 near Cameron Lake on Sunday, July 31 sent two people to hospital, one with serious injuries, according to Central Vancouver Island Traffic Services. The east bound motorcycle driver lost control and both riders were thrown to the road. The 64-year-old male driver was airlifted to Victoria. The female passenger, 59, had minor injuries and was released.
