Neither Kimberley or Cranbrook RCMP reported any major incidents or damage over Halloween.

Kimberley received a report of persons looking for cash donations to the food bank while trick or treating. The callers were suspicious as they didn’t believe the food bank canvassed in that manner.  No money was passed on.

A report of an erratic driver was received, officers located the vehicle and found two firearms that didn’t belong to the occupants, who could neither produce the proper documentation. The firearms were seized and returned to the owner.

Around noon a driver was stopped and he showed signs of alcohol consumption.  He was given a breath test and received a three-day driving suspension.

Cranbrook received 17 calls for service. Two three-day driving probations were handed out and one-24 hour by drugs.

There was two liquor infractions and several Motor Vehicle Act tickets issued.  An arrest warrant was executed on a subject for charges out of Vernon.

Overall it appears everyone enjoyed a safe Halloween.
