Second stolen sled recovered by police

Thirty-six-year-old Hinton, Alta. resident facing charges after snowmobile stolen out of Vernon was found in his possession.

A 36-year-old Hinton, Alta. resident is facing charges after a snowmobile stolen out of Vernon was found in his possession.

Sicamous RCMP arrested the man following a Jan. 9 traffic stop on the Trans-Canada Highway, when officers pulled over an eastbound pickup truck carrying the sled in its box. When asked, the driver was unable to produce registration for the sled, a 2015 SkiDoo Summit 800. The driver is being charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000.

Sicamous Cpl. J.R. Lechky says this is the second stolen sled recovered by police this winter, and warns with the increase in thefts of recreational vehicles, it’s important people take extra effort to secure their property. This would include using hitch locks on trailers, immobilization devices locking sleds and ATVs to vehicle decks.
