Many are in Craven enjoying Country Thunder and while some have been misbehaving, RCMP are reporting that it has been fairly quiet through the first two days.
On Saturday, RCMP gave the latest when it comes to numbers for service.
To date, there’s been 34 calls for service since 7:00 a.m. Friday, bringing the total inside the grounds area to 59.
Staff Sargeant Devin Pugh said the amount of people who’ve been detained during that period of time has taken a jump as well.
“We’ve filed a total of 10 prisoners over the actual entire event, which is right on part with our normal.”
Of the 34 calls, there were several liquor act related offences, 3 assaults, one domestic assault, one theft of camping equipment and one Robbery where a quantity of cash was stolen.
During the same period, Combined Traffic Services (CTSS) conducted 333 traffic stops outside the grounds resulting in 81 charges under the traffic safety act.
Pugh noted that’s kept traffic and road patrols busy.
“They did four breath tests for alcohol,” he said. “They did actually charge one impaired driver, as well. Four vehicles were impounded and they issued 93 traffic warnings.”
RCMP remind those going to Craven they do have a solid presence outside the grounds and are conducting enforcement not only inside, but outside. They also advise if you’re going and know alcohol will be an issue to use buses or taxis that are going to and from.
