A 2021 black Continental box trailer that was being stored at an address on Oyama Rd was stolen between February 21 and early morning February 24.

If anyone has seen a trailer as described abandoned please call your local police station.

During this time Lake Country RCMP received six driving complaints ranging from speeding, swerving, slow driving and aggressive driving. When reporting poor driving please try to take note of the license plate, vehicle description and driver description when possible. If the driving behavior is so dangerous that it warrants a violation ticket one can be issued to the registered owner under certain conditions. Police would require the license plate number, vehicle description, time and date of the offence, a brief statement and the caller to attend traffic court if the registered owner disputed the ticket. Police cannot be everywhere however will investigate complaints from the public and are more than happy to work with callers to increase driver awareness and road safety.
