RCMP seek owner of steel wheel

A steel wheel had been found leaning up against the side of a home in the 2900 block of 33rd Avenue.

Vernon RCMP have come into possession of some unique property.

Just before 4 p.m. Sunday, officers were alerted by a resident that a steel wheel had been found leaning up against the side of a home in the 2900 block of 33rd Avenue.

“The wheel is approximately five-feet in diameter, and it appears to be from an old hay rake or similar type farm machinery that someone likely used as decoration in their yard,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“The person who found it was concerned about the safety of people around his building due to the weight and size of the steel wheel.”

The wheel was secured by Vernon officers and is being held at the detachment for the owner to identify and pick up.
