Salmo police beat includes vehicle fire and road rage

Salmo RCMP is investigating a suspicious vehicle fire that destroyed a truck.

Salmo RCMP is investigating a suspicious vehicle fire near the Whiteline Truck Stop. On March 29 at 12:50 a.m., police and fire attended quickly extinguishing the blaze but the 1994 GMC pickup was destroyed.

Witnesses in the area were spoken to and police are reviewing surveillance video but ask for the public assistance in reporting anything suspicious noted in the area that night.

Officers out of Salmo are also investigating a “road rage” incident near Ymir on April 1. A male suspect was driving in an erratic manner and when the driver of another vehicle passed the irregular driving continued.

When the victim pulled over the suspect male allegedly punched the victim once, no major injuries were noted.

There have been several accidents involving deer. As the nice weather is coming the Salmo RCMP are advising drivers to take extra caution as the deer are out in full force.

Police would also remind motorists to remove studded tires prior to May 1 in order to keep them from damaging roadways in the warmer weather. Fines of $109 can be issued under the Motor Vehicle Act if studded tires are not removed before that date.
