A 20-year-old man from British Columbia with blood on his shirt and arms was seen by a member of the RCMP. Surveillance cameras show the man throwing a fire extinguisher into the Servus Credit Union building. Subway’s alarm went off when the front door of the restaurant was broken. The suspect was inebriated at the time and will be charged with three counts of mischief.

Distracted driver rolls van

RCMP say a 24-year-old woman rolled her van recently when she unbuckled her seat belt to check on the status of some kids in the back seat.
