The cause of the issue was soon discovered. The owner of one unit, in an attempt to dissuade bears from chewing up a hot tub cover, had sprayed the cover with bear spray – the scent of which also affected the neighbours' breathing. No charges were laid.
Once more unto the breach...
On Dec. 1 at 11:35 p.m. the Whistler RCMP stopped a man on the Village Stroll with an open can of beer. When they stopped him, they determined that the 30-year-old man was on probation and was not allowed to leave the province of Ontario without permission. His original offences occurred back in May, and included assault and mischief.
The RCMP held the man until he could get a bail hearing from a Justice of the Peace, then released him under a promise to appear in court for breaching his conditions.
While police were dealing with that individual, another individual attempted to intervene. This person was carrying an open bottle of vodka, and police quickly determined that he was also in breach of a condition not to consume alcohol outside his own residence. He was also 30 years old.
Both men hail from Kitchener, Ontario.
Male voyeur arrested after too many bathroom breaks
Whistler Blackcomb staff became suspicious of a male who was taking too many bathroom breaks, repeatedly going into the men's bathroom and standing at the urinals while checking out other males. Apparently this behaviour went on for two days, Dec. 8 and 9 before the police were called and on-mountain patrols attended. The male had left by the time the RCMP arrived, but staff had obtained his identity from his ski pass.
The RCMP are now investigating the 40-year-old male for suspected voyeurism, although he did not have any past history with the police.
Man arrested for planning "Ganjam" had backpack full of marijuana, beer
A 22-year-old Whistler male is facing charges of possession for the purposes of trafficking after being busted while attempting to host an unsanctioned snowboard competition on Blackcomb where the prizes were marijuana.
The police received a call about the "Ganjam" on Dec. 12 after it was posted on Facebook. Two plainclothes officers waited at the top of the terrain park on the day of the event when a man rode by on his snowboard saying "Ganjam, Ganjam." He rode down into the park where the police watched him open a backpack that contained cans of beer. He then opened the front pocket and showed another person a bag of marijuana. He then packed up and was preparing to ride down into the park when police stopped him.
