Several items were stolen from a Whistler home this week while its residents were still sound asleep inside.
In a release, Whistler RCMP said that it responded to a break-and-enter on Aug. 14 to a home in the 7000 block of Fitzsimmons Road South. Multiple items were reportedly taken, including a laptop, tablet, two bikes, a satellite phone, sunglasses, a speaker, and keys to a vehicle parked outside that were used to gain access. Police said additional items were stolen from the vehicle as well.
Bike stolen in break-and-enter
Another break-and-enter was reported to Whistler police on Aug. 9, when, at approximately 5:30 a.m., a single bike was stolen from the 4000 block of Main Street.
The bike is a large Specialized Tero 3.0 Step-Through, white in colour, with the serial No. WSB001059941s.
Damage was also reportedly done to the building during the break-in.
Two impaired driver nabbed in same day
Whistler RCMP was kept busy on Aug. 16, catching two separate people for impaired driving.
The first instance occurred when police responded to “an unwanted person” in the area of Lake Placid Road and Highway 99. (Pique has requested more information from police as to why this individual was supposedly “unwanted” in the area, and will update this story when we hear back.)
An officer eventually located the suspect vehicle, after a report the driver had been drinking. The driver displayed signs of intoxication while speaking to the Mountie, and failed a subsequent breathalyzer test.
The vehicle was towed and the driver was given an immediate 90-day suspension.
That same day, police noticed another vehicle “driving in an unusual [manner], where it appeared the driver was attempting to [avoid] detection from police,” an RCMP release said.
The officer conducted a roadside stop and administered a breathalyzer test, which the driver failed.
The vehicle was towed and the driver was also handed an immediate 90-day driving suspension.
Whistler police dealt with a total of 129 files in the past week.
