Local social media was buzzing following an incident along Hot Springs Road this weekend.
RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail said one person has been taken into custody following two police calls within two hours late Saturday (July 18) night.
Shortly after 10 p.m., Rail said Agassiz RCMP responded to a complaint of belligerent behaviour allegedly coming from two visitors parked in a semi trick along the 800 block of Hot Springs Road. Rail indicated the occupants may have been under the influence.
Police stated the truck was parked on the property with permission from the owner. After the incident was calmed, the police left. About an hour and a half later, they were called out again to respond to an incident of yelling, more belligerent behaviour and a fight, again allegedly associated with the occupants of the semi truck. Rail said the officers warned the alleged perpetrators again. The officers were getting ready to leave once more when the noise and belligerent behaviour resumed before they’d even left the area, resulting in one person being taken into custody.
“Everybody went way, way out to do everything they could to peacefully resolve a really trying situation,” Rail said.
Readers are encouraged to report suspicious behaviour to the Agassiz RCMP by calling their non-emergency line at 604-796-2211, dialing 9-1-1 in emergencies or reporting the crime online by using the Online Crime Reporting tool through the Upper Fraser Valley RCMP link, which can be found through kentbc.ca.
