Vernon and North Okanagan News
From probation to jail
Vernon RCMP report a relatively quiet Halloween night, but as spokesperson Gord Molendyk reports, a couple of late night incidents stand out.
Around 11:00 p.m., Bylaw officers noticed two young men, aged 17 and 20, walking south on 32nd street, one of them was carrying a bat.
When officers tracked the pair down, a search turned up a replica pellet hand gun, an exacto knife and a lock blade knife. The pair were carrying assorted tools with them as well.
To add to his troubles, the 17 year old is currently bound by a Probation Order as well as a Recognizance prohibiting him from possessing a knife outside his residence.
He was arrested and is being held for court.
Previous to that, officers arrested another person who had decided to violate their probation terms as well.
Around 10:40 p.m., officers from the Crime Reduction Unit were in the area of the Real Canadian Superstore parking lot when they noticed a woman wandering around the area.
When they approached the woman, she was unable to produce any identification.
She did tell the officers her name, but then admitted she didn't want them to know her name since she was on conditions not to leave the city of Kelowna.
Smelling of liquor, officers then learned she was also on conditions to abstain from drinking alcohol.
Then to compound her problems, it was learned she was also accused of taking an automobile from Kelowna without the owners consent earlier in the day.
Not surprisingly, officers located the vehicle a short distance from where she was arrested.
She was held in custody until her court appearance on Thursday.
