Grand Forks RCMP say a vehicle reported stolen last week turned out not to be.
A woman called them to say that it had been swiped, but within minutes called back to say that her husband had it. He had left his cell phone behind so she couldn’t immediately confirm that he had taken it.
Police did not mind the call.
“If you feel you may be the victim of a crime, never hesitate to call and report immediately,” Sgt. Darryl Peppler said in a news release. “While this file had a happy ending, often that will not be the case.”
Best to drive with a license
Police say they credit a man for his honesty, but he still got a ticket.
Last week they stopped a vehicle at 66th Avenue and 18th Street in Grand Forks. The driver, a 31-year-old city man, admitted his license was suspended.
“While his honesty was appreciated, he was still served with a violation ticket,” Peppler said.
His vehicle was towed and impounded for seven days while he was given a notice to appear in court in December for driving while suspended.
Drunk driver stopped
A 23-year-old Grand Forks man was issued a three-day immediate roadside ban and had his vehicle impounded after being pulled over on 72nd Avenue at 3rd Street.
Police say they suspected the man was impaired and asked him provide a breath sample.
