Police were called to a sudden death Dec. 19 at 12:30 p.m. after a women was witnessed on the ground beside her car. The vehicle was running at the time along the 3700 block of 45 Street. EMS and police attended the scene. Foul play has been ruled out by the RCMP.

Close call in collision

It is believed a flat tire on a Chevy Uplander caused the driver to lose control of their westbound vehicle Dec. 18 at 5 p.m. It then entered the opposite lane and the driver of a Chevy Blazer had to use evasive manoeuvres to avoid a serious collision. The front end of the Blazer collided with the rear end of the Uplander.

There were no injuries or charges in the incident.

TVs thrown over bridge

Concerned citizens called police about two youths throwing old TVs over the north trail walking bridge near the water Dec. 20 at 1 p.m.

It appears they acquired the TVs from an out of town business that was giving away old television sets. The youths were asked to clean up the mess and were issued a warning.

Drunk man seeks police assistance

Ponoka RCMP responded to a man banging on the door at the detachment Dec. 21 at 6:30 a.m. He was taken in by police as he had no jacket and no shoes. A short time later police received a call from a woman who said a drunken man entered her home, thinking it was a friend’s, and tried to sleep on the couch but could not because she was sleeping there.

She asked the man to leave and he accidentally left with one of his shoes and one of hers. The shoes were recovered in the alley and police believe the incidents are related as the description given by the homeowner matches that of the man at their door.

If you have information on any crime, call Ponoka RCMP at 403-783-4472 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
