Details described in our local crime reports are based solely on conjecture by The Valley Voice News. Unless otherwise noted, our "Street News" has not been confirmed by the RCMP. We thank the Chilliwack RCMP for their cooperation as we continue to gather the news.


ust after midnight Sunday, an Emergency Response Team member who happened to be driving by Triple Play Pub at Five Corners, found himself in a tight spot while attempting to break up a fight that spilled onto the street and make some arrests. The problem was that some of the brawlers didn't want to cooperate.


The area was soon swarming with police as heavy metal band Coastal Assault’s music carried outside onto the street.


One man had a gash on his face and was seen to by paramedics at Five Corners. An officer had something in an evidence bag which may or may not have been a weapon.
