Trail RCMP Report Covers Theft, Sexual Exploitation, Traffic Stops


Another week, another media report from the Trail and Greater District RCMP Detachment.

The Detachment is hoping to identify a man and woman (pictured above) from video surveillance taken from a Rossland Avenue business in Trail.

On July 28th police caught word that a man and woman had allegedly stole two cans of bear spray worth about $145 total.

The man is described as Caucasian, approximately 30 years old, skinny with dark hark and wearing an "Oilers" baseball hat.

He also wore a white shirt, grey shorts, black shoes and socks.

The female is Caucasian, appearing between 35 and 30 years old, with long, black hair.

She was wearing a black baseball hat, glasses and a purple tank top.

Police are warning the public that the best way to avoid becoming the victim of situations where sensitive material can be used for extortion is to not participate in the activities at all.

This after a victim reported to police August 7th that they were being extorted $5000 after engaging in consensual sexual activity online.

RCMP says the other party threatened to post allegedly recorded footage to social media if the victim did not pay up.

August 8th saw a black F-150 Ford truck stopped for speeding near the 1600-block of Marcolin Drive.

A 31-year old Fruitvale man failed a roadside screening test and his vehicle was driven home by his wife.

The last listing in Trail RCMP’s report covers a recently arrested Trail man who is now facing an additional count of Failing to Comply with an Undertaking.

Officers conducted a curfew check August 3rd for the 32-year old Trail man following his release from custody and while he was not found at home, he was later found in the passenger seat of a speeding vehicle in Fruitvale.

The Trail man was initially arrested August 1st after a traffic stop allegedly located 55 grams of a substance believed to be Fentanyl, 38 grams of a substance believed to be Methamphetamine, a loaded shotgun and imitation handgun.
