McBride Nasty Calls Solved
McBride, B.C.- The case of the threatening calls to the Mayor of McBride is closed, with a person stepping forward and taking responsibility.
In late July, McBride RCMP were advised a threatening phone call had been made to the Mayor of McBride and to a Village Councillor.
The village of McBride issued a media release asking anyone with information on the calls to contact the RCMP.
During the investigation the person responsible for the calls came forward to the RCMP.
The individual admitted to making these calls along with others and explained that no harm was intended. The young adult had located contact information for the Mayor and Councilor then placed the calls but only intended them to be a prank. The suspect was informed that these types of calls, under certain parameters, may not be a joke but in fact, a criminal offence and could very well have resulted in charges.
Personal apologies were made to the Mayor and Councilor. The young adult asked that these apologies be extended to all persons affected by this incident including Council and staff who had to be called in on a weekend to ensure the Village data systems were secure.
The name of the person involved will not be released as no charge recommendation was forwarded nor was an information sworn.
