Vernon police officers had to round up a streaker Wednesday afternoon.

“He was apprehended and taken to the hospital to be reviewed by medical professionals,” said Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy.

It’s not known why the individual was nude.

No charges will be laid against the 19-year-old man.

Vehicle strikes Falkland house

No one was injured after a vehicle struck a house in Falkland early Wednesday morning.

The incident occurred when a vehicle left Highway 97, hit a pole and landed up against a house.

“It damaged the front porch of the house,” said Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy, with the RCMP.

“It’s believed driver inattentiveness played a role.”

As a result of the accident, the highway was closed down until just after 9 a.m. and electricity was knocked out to Falkland.
