Pitbull attacks dog on Timberlands Road – Ladysmith Police Report

Ladysmith RCMP responded to 333 calls for service in November and say Light Up went "very smoothly."

The Ladysmith RCMP responded to 333 calls for service during the month of November.

The Ladysmith Detachment eclipsed last year’s  total calls for service around Nov. 15 of this year.  The human resource situation at Ladysmith Detachment is currently under review.

For Festival of Lights on Nov. 27, Ladysmith RCMP was very strongly supported by several dozen  extra RCMP members brought in from surrounding RCMP detachments and Victoria Island District Headquarters. The event proceeded very smoothly.

• On Nov. 2 at 4 p.m., the Ladysmith RCMP were called to Rocky Creek Road, where a male had been seen shooting a rifle into the bushes. Police cautiously approached the scene and were able to detain a male and female for unsafe use of firearms. A search resulted in locating firearms that appeared to be real but were determined to be pellet guns. Guns were seized, and no charges were pursued.

• On Nov. 8 at 2:40 p.m., the Ladysmith RCMP were called to the 10500 block of Victoria Road, where an abandoned motorcycle had been left beside the railroad tracks. The vehicle was secured at the Ladysmith Detachment. The vehicle is not able to be identified, and the police have not been able to contact the owner.

• On Nov. 9 at 1:25 p.m., police received a report of a single vehicle striking two pedestrians on Pilkey Point Road on Thetis Island. Ladysmith RCMP attended the scene, along with Thetis Island first responders, BC Ambulance and an RCMP collision analyst. One female was airlifted to Victoria General Hospital with numerous fractures and was to remain at the facility for ongoing treatment. The spouse of the female pedestrian suffered minor injuries. The vehicle was driven by a female driver and a male passenger, who were not injured. The investigation is ongoing, with possible charges pending.

• On Nov. 18 at noon, police received a report that a male walking his dog on Timberlands Road near the highway encountered another dog described as a large white and brown pitbull. The pitbull attacked the other dog, causing the owner to try and separate the two dogs. The male suffered bites to his hand as a result. The pitbull’s male owner later arrived and took his dog with him and departed the scene in a green van.

• On Nov. 27 at 6:38 p.m. during the annual Ladysmith Festival of Lights event, Ladysmith RCMP were called to the 100 block of French Street for a reported disturbance. The offending pedestrians were gone upon police arrival.

• On Nov. 27 at 11 p.m., Ladysmith RCMP officers attended the Sportsman Pub, where patrons were seen outside the building drinking and an intoxicated male had to be removed from the pub and transported home. Subsequently, the pub was issued notices under the Liquor Act for selling liquor to an intoxicated person and other infractions. The matter remains under investigation

If you have any information to these crimes or any other ones, please contact the Ladysmith RCMP Detachment at 250-245-2215 or CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-800-222-8477.
