Here’s another reason why smoking is bad for you.
Vernon RCMP responded to a call just before 8 p.m. Monday from an employee at the Blue Stream Motel, requesting police assistance to remove a tenant who breached her rental contract by smoking in her room.
While police were assisting the employee to remove the tenant, they discovered a man hiding in the bathroom shower.
“The man is known to our officers and was arrested for an outstanding breach,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.
“Our officers then noticed a generator and several power tools in the room.”
Indications are the tools were reported stolen from a previous file.
The pair were arrested for possession of stolen property, and could face such charges at a later date as the matter is still being investigated.
The 24-year-old male suspect is expected to appear in court for the breach of his conditions.
The 23-year-old woman is expected to be released from custody.
