A quiet beginning to 2014
It was a pretty quiet New Year's Eve in Cranbrook and Kimberley, RCMP are reporting.
"Overall (there were) no major incidents in either community," said Cpl. Chris Newel.
Cranbrook RCMP dealt with 18 incidents overnight on Dec. 31, he continued. These included noise complaints, people who were drunk in public, assault, and attempted theft. Police also helped Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services deal with a large backyard bonfire.
Four people – all intoxicated – spent the night in jail for various offences.
Meanwhile, in Kimberley there were only a few calls for service.
"Bar checks were conducted throughout the night but (there were) no major problems," said Cpl. Newel.
