WORD ON THE STREET
Submitted by Viking RCMP
On March 26 members received a call from a male subject concerned for the welfare of his ex-wife. Checks were conducted and determined all parties were fine.
On March 27 police responded to a traffic complaint. The vehicle in question was traveling down the highway with the hood of the vehicle up.
Members located the vehicle which was hauling a trailer and spoke with the driver who stated that the truck was over heating and that was the reason he was driving with the hood up. The 76-year old male was issued a violation ticket for operating a trailer with no registration. He was also issued a written warning for driving a trailer without licence plates properly displayed, failing to provide valid insurance, driving a motor vehicle when unsafe due to obscured view through windshield and improper disposal of waste on a highway.
On March 31 a 911 call was received regarding a disturbance. Upon police arrival and speaking to the caller it was determined that a 65 year old male was yelling at children on the street and was witnessed punching a car. The investigation regarding this matter is ongoing.
