SURREY, B.C. - B.C.'s police watchdog is looking into an incident involving Mounties in Quesnel, B.C., going back to Feb. 28th.

However, there are few details about exactly what the Independent Investigations Office is investigating.

A news release from the office says no more information will be released because of the sensitive nature of the probe.

Meanwhile, the office has given the Crown its report on an incident in which a man was injured when he lost control of a motorcycle and struck an RCMP vehicle in Campbell River last December.

Mounties were trying to stop the man over allegations he wasn't wearing a helmet.

The IIO only hands in reports to the Crown when it believes an officer has committed an offence, however, it doesn't make any recommendations and it's up to prosecutors to decide if any charges are laid.
