Couple found naked in hotel hot tub with no clothes
The May long weekend is one of Whistler's craziest for police files, and this year was no exception. On May 19, guests staying at a hotel on the Benchlands found a naked couple from Port Coquitlam in the hot tub with no clothes anywhere. They shed their clothes somewhere the previous night and jumped the fence to get to the hot tub, but were unable to leave because it was too cold. Hours later they couldn't remember where they left their clothes. They were given towels and given a ride by police back to their respective accommodations.
Intoxicated female stiffs taxi, breaks and enters, flees police
A 21-year-old Whistler woman got off with a night in cells and a ticket for being intoxicated in public after a series of late-night escapades.
Just before midnight on June 10, the woman was taken to a house on Fitzsimmons Creek by a taxi. Instead of paying the driver she got out of the cab and ran to a nearby house, letting herself in. The driver knocked on the door and was greeted by the owner of the property, who didn't know who the female was — only that she was using his bathroom. When the homeowner and driver confronted her, she ran again, this time cutting through yards before police arrived and found her further down the road.
She was unable to remember where she lived or the phone numbers of any friends, and was arrested for public intoxication and held until sober. She also paid off the taxi.
River of Golden Dreams sting results in alcohol confiscations, tickets
After receiving numerous complaints from tour operators regarding drinking and littering along the River of Golden Dreams that links Alta Lake to Green Lake, the RCMP decided to take action.
Over four days in August, the RCMP confiscated and poured out up to 350 cans and bottles of beer and spirits, handing out tickets to some of the guilty parties.
"It's a public area, it's a family place for people to go, it's ecotourism, and (offenders) should be mindful of the other people that are in there," said Sergeant Rob Knapton of the Whistler RCMP. "(Drinking and littering) is the last thing that people want to see coming down the river."
