Nabbed 'hiding' from police

Vernon North Okanagan RCMP arrested two men after a game of 'hide and seek' didn’t go in their favour.

On Feb. 7 RCMP were called to the area of L&A Road and Cools Road in Vernon where two men were allegedly ‘casing’ out the area in a white Pontiac Grand Prix. 

Tips helped police find the car, but not the men.

However, due to snowy conditions, officers were able to track the men to a nearby bush where they were attempting to hide from police. 

They were arrested without incident. 

"It was the quick thinking of the local residents that lead police to the area, where the suspect males were ultimately hiding in bushes attempting to evade police," says Const. Kelly Brett. "The white Pontiac vehicle was in fact reported stolen out of the Kamloops area and there is no doubt the suspect males were looking to continue their crime spree." 

Cameron Bob, 34, and Ryan Exner, 37, both of Kamloops, were charged with numerous counts of possession of property obtained by crime and failing to comply with probation orders.

The next court appearance for Bob and Exner is scheduled for Feb. 22 in Vernon.
