October 8; Lois Lake
At approximately 11:54 am, police responded to a report of a theft from a job site at the Lois Lake dam. Sometime between 7 pm on October 5 and 11:50 am on October 8, two Honda GU7000 generators were stolen from the site. The generators are valued at approximately $8,000. Due to the size, they would likely need to be loaded by two people.

At approximately 9:29 pm, police responded to a theft of a bicycle from the Save-On-Foods parking lot. Sometime between 8:50 pm and 8:55 pm a bike was stolen from that location. The bike is described as a blue Ibis bicycle with orange writing and grips and is valued at approximately $7,000.

October 12; Duncan Street
At approximately 11:15 pm, police stopped a vehicle while investigating another file. While speaking to the driver, police observed an open six-pack of vodka soda in the vehicle. Police also noted an odour of liquor on the driver’s breath. The driver, a 51-year-old male from Powell River, provided a breath sample on an approved screening device, which registered a fail. He was issued a 90-day driving prohibition and a 30-day vehicle impound under the Motor Vehicle Act.
