Logging demonstration leads to arrests north of Kaslo

RCMP arrested three people last week, in relation to a logging practice demonstration.

RCMP say the three were allegedly obstructing vehicles entering a work site north of Kaslo.

 Kaslo RCMP were conducting pro-active patrols on the Deception Fire Service Road near Meadow Creek, when they observed a large line-up of logging and light trucks, stopped on the roadway near the 2 kilometre mark. 

At the front of the line up, Officers allegedly located a wooden blockade which was obstructing the trucks entry into a logging site.

A 42-year-old woman from Balfour, a 36-year-old man from Meadow Creek and a 66-year-old man from Argenta, were arrested for Intimidation after allegedly refusing to remove the blockade. 

All three have since been released from custody and are expected to appear in court at a later date.
