RCMP don't find their man

Police are still looking for a 28-year-old man wanted on several warrants after he wasn't found during a raid of a Sicamous home Wednesday.

The Sicamous RCMP, along with the Southeast District Emergency Response Team and the RCMP Police Dog Services, were conducting surveillance at a home on Kappel Street Wednesday when they saw who they believed to be Michael Trosky leaving the home.

“An ERT member blocked the vehicle's path with his truck while a North Okanagan Police Dog Services member boxed in the driver side of the vehicle causing heavy damage to the vehicle and light damage to the PDS vehicle, in order to ensure that the driver could not flee,” said Cpl. Dan Moskaluk in a press release.

The man and a woman in the car were arrested, but Trosky did not end up being one of them.

The man inside the car was, however, arrested for driving while prohibited, while the woman was released without charges.

Another woman inside the home was ordered to come outside, and the ERT cleared the residence. Trosky was not found.

Trosky faces previous charges for evading police, dangerous operation of a vehicle, failing to comply, theft of mail and theft under $5,000.

“He is wanted by police jurisdictions including Salmon Arm and Dawson Creek detachments on warrants for two separate flight from police incidents,” said Cpl. Moskaluk.

Police have described Trosky as a 6-foot-2, 186-pound Indigenous man with black hair and brown eyes.

“Given the flight risk that Trosky poses and the disregard for public safety that he has exhibited in previous arrest attempts, we consider that Trosky is a threat to the public,” said Cpl. Moskaluk.

Police have asked anyone with information on his whereabouts to call police or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, and to call 911 if he is spotted.
