Strange sight leads to arrests

An alert citizen thought it strange that two men were pulling a trailer and a quad down a Vernon road

An alert citizen thought it strange that two men would be pulling a trailer with a quad on it down an East Hill roadway.

Pulling it by hand, that is.

Vernon RCMP officers were sent to the area of 16th Street and 30th Avenue for a report of two men pulling the trailer and quad by hand just before 11:30 p.m. Friday.

“The trailer with the quad was found at the intersection of 16th Street and 32nd Avenue,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“The police service dog unit was called in and they tracked the suspects to a set of tire tracks in the snow a short distance away. It appeared the suspects got in a vehicle and left the area.”

Officers set up containment and checked vehicles leaving the area.

A short time later, a pickup with two men inside was checked and the occupants were arrested.

The two men, both 18 and from Vernon, have been released form custody on a promise to appear in court for the charge of theft.
