It was a case of deja vu for police this week

Nelson police arrest woman twice in same day

The Nelson Police Department arrested the same woman twice Wednesday in separate incidents.

The Nelson Police Department arrested the same woman twice Wednesday in separate incidents.

The first incident occurred at 10:36 a.m., when the police received a report of a shoplifter at the liquor store on Anderson Street. The suspect had left the area, but staff provided a description and officers were able to review surveillance footage. While patrolling the area, they located her at a bus stop at the Chahko Mika mall.

The 22-year-old was arrested without incident and released on a promise to appear in court.

The second incident occurred at approximately 1:30 p.m., when police received a report from Save-On-Foods reporting they had a shoplifter in custody.

When officers arrived, they realized it was the same woman they had released only hours earlier. She was held in custody pending a court appearance.

Operation Impact nabs three drunk drivers

A Thanksgiving weekend campaign by traffic police in West Kootenay netted three impaired drivers.

West Kootenay Traffic Services and the Integrated Road Safety Unit say Operation Impact also resulted in four drivers receiving three-day suspensions for alcohol or 24 hours for drugs.

They further issued 88 violation tickets for speed and aggressive driving, seven for not wearing seat belts, four for distracted driving (as a result of using cell phones) and several for other traffic violations.

“There were no serious collisions on the weekend but police have concerns with the drivers found under the influence of alcohol or drugs,” said RCMP Sgt. Derrick Donovan.
