Trail RCMP Report Includes Assault, Theft and more


This week's Trail RCMP report includes assault, theft and much more.

Last Monday, October 4th, a patrolling officer spotted a 34-year old Trail man with a replica handgun poking out of his fanny pack near the Bay Avenue and Daniel Street intersection. While compliant with the officer, the man is still being investigated for having his now-seized air-pistol in a public space. Police are reminding the public not to purchase such items outside of legitimate sources.

Last Wednesday, October 6th, heard a report that a package was stolen from the front of a Birch Avenue residence containing a Bose sound bar, a Dewalt drill and some smaller items. Thankfully a porch pirate suspect was caught on video surveillance, described as being six foot tall and wearing an orange jacket, purple hooded sweatshirt, dark pants, dark boots and a large red backpack.

Last Friday, October 8th, police caught word of a break, enter and theft at Gerick's Cycle on Rossland Avenue in Trail to find that two thieves had made away with roughly $10,000 worth of items. The items include clothing, a computer and a $5500 bicycle.

A 16-year old appears in court December 9th after allegedly assaulting a 17-year old with pepper or bear spray on Fourth Avenue last Thursday. RCMP says the attack appeared to be unprovoked and the victim fully recovered.  The suspect fled but was later arrested and released on conditions not to contact the victim.

Two responding officers were injured and one still remains off-duty following violent arrest of a 41-year old Trail man on Daniel Street this Monday evening, October 9th. RCMP learned the man had two outstanding unendorsed warrants for his arrest after responding to a complaint that he was allegedly causing a disturbance. Police deployed a taser on the Trail man who brandished two large knives and became aggressive, but one officer received a serious cut to his hand.
