Long weekend full of hijinks and arrests in Harrison area

Boats cut loose from docks returned to owners at Harrison Lake

A large bush party was shut down before it even started over the long weekend.

Police were tipped off to the party, which was to take place on Friday night (Aug. 31) up Harrison Forest Service Road. Agassiz RCMP and the UFVRD Seasonal Policing Unit set up a roadblock in the area, and stopped a large number of people.

Sgt. Stuart Falebrinza said that “copious amounts of liquor were dumped and suspended drivers were located.”

One man was also arrested under the Immigration Act.

“As a result of this pro-active measure, no party occurred,” Falebrinza said.

That wasn’t the only action over the long weekend.

On that same night, Agassiz RCMP received a call about a group of people reportedly firing a rifle into the water from a pink boat, about four km north of the Agassiz-Rosedale bridge. Patrols failed to locate the boat.

And in Harrison Hot Springs that night, an unknown person or people untied several boats that were docked at a marina. All of the boats were located and returned to the owners.

However, a few days later a similar incident occurred.

On Sept. 3, two police officers were conducting foot patrols in Harrison when they noticed several bumper boats floating free in the water. They had been cut free from a secure cable. A 20-year old man from Langley was reportedly seen floating in one of the boats and later arrested for mischief after attempting to evade the police by jumping in the water.

The suspect has been released, required to appear in court at a later date.
