-- A 42-year-old Salmon Arm is back in jail after enjoying freedom for less than one day.
Murray Douglas Campbell was released from the Kamloops Regional Correctional Facility on Oct. 18 and was arrested the same day for breaching several conditions of his release.
He has been charged with two counts of Failing to Comply with a Probation Order.
RCMP did not say what conditions Campbell breached.
-- Salmon Arm RCMP responded to a mischief complaint on Alpen Paradies Road in Blind Bay Oct.19, after a tree was damaged and a bird feeder was found missing.
Police determined the damage was caused by a hungry bear and are reminding residents in the area to “bear proof” their yards and homes and keep garbage and food in a secure area. There have been several bear complaints in the various parts of the Salmon Arm area over the past few weeks.
-- A 50-year-old Salmon Arm man was arrested in the early morning hours of Oct. 20 after a fight outside a bar in the 1000 block of Lakeshore Drive. When police arrived at the scene, they found the main aggressor unconscious on the ground.
The man had been seen assaulting his girlfriend when an observer stepped in to intervene. The suspect turned his anger towards the man, who defended himself and dealt with the situation.
The suspect had to be restrained when he became combative with police and paramedics. He was then taken to hospital where he received treatment and was later arrested again, for causing a disturbance and spitting on hospital staff.
