A person suffering a mental health crisis on the Stawamus Chief was talked out of suicide and brought back to safety by Squamish RCMP officers.
Several Squamish RCMP officers hiked to the first peak of the Chief after they received a call about an individual suffering a mental health crisis.
After over four hours of dialogue, the suicidal person was apprehended under the Mental Health Act and taken to the local hospital.
Increase in theft from vehicles
Between October 27 and November 2, the Squamish RCMP received 14 reports of theft from vehicles.
Of these 14 reports, eight were reported on October 30 in Britannia Beach and Lions Bay.
Many of the vehicles were left unlocked and various items being stolen from inside.
“This is a spike in these communities and the Squamish RCMP is encouraging the public to remove all personal items from inside their vehicles and to lock their vehicles,” police said.
