Stolen Vehicle Leads to Two Arrests

Vernon RCMP say they arrest two men after and game of hide and seek didn't go in their favour.

On February 7th, Vernon RCMP were called to the area of L&A Road and Cools Road, Vernon, where two men were allegedly ‘casing’ out the area in a white Pontiac Grand Prix. Witness reports lead officers to the white Pontiac where it was found un-occupied. Due to snowy conditions however, officers were able to track the pair to a nearby bush where they were attempting to hide from police. The two suspects were taken into custody 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 Cst. 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”. 

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

The next court appearance for Bob and Exner is scheduled for February 22nd, 2017 in Vernon.
