Over a 10 day period, Fairview RCMP has charged two people in two separate investigations and one is still ongoing.
On July 4th, Fairview RCMP was called to a rural home after it received a report of a man firing a gun. Officers from Grande Prairie Police Dog Services along with those from Peace River and Spirit River helped to arrest the man. No one was injured during the incident. He is facing 16 criminal charges and is scheduled to appear in court on August 14th.
Then on July 9th, police got a call about a break and enter on a home and vehicle in town. They say jewellery and other items were taken and the suspect left on foot. A few days later on the 11th RCMP responded to a break and enter in progress but again the suspect left on foot. A 28-year-old man from Fairview has been charged in connection with both break-ins. He appeared in court on July 24th.
On July 14th, Fairview RCMP pulled over a vehicle outside of town for an equipment violation. During the stop, police say they found two guns, meth and hydromorphone. That investigation is still ongoing.
RCMP is encouraging people to report any suspicious people or vehicles they see to police or Crime Stoppers.
