Trail RCMP Track Down Ankle, Violator Captured Wrong-footed
When a man violated his court-ordered restrictions, the game was afoot – literally.
“On Aug. 20, at 9:42 a.m., a frontline Trail and Greater District RCMP officer received a report from a monitoring company that a 33-year-old Trail man had violated his court ordered condition to remain inside his residence on Green Avenue in Trail. The man’s electronic monitoring ankle bracelet triggered an alarm with the monitoring company when he left the residence that he was to remain inside 24 hours a day,” said RCMP Sgt. Mike Wicentowich. “The monitoring company was able to provide an up-to-date and accurate location for the man to the officer due to the electronic ankle device still being physically attached to the man’s leg.
“Trail and Salmo RCMP officers eventually caught up to the man early the next morning at a location on Wildwood Road, in Salmo. The officers arrested the man took him into custody.
The 33-year-old man was charged with one count of Fail to Comply with a Court Order contrary to Section 145(5)(a) of the Criminal Code. He remains in custody and his next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 29, 2022, in Provincial Court, in Rossland,
You can’t run away from your own feet, Wicentowich said, quoting Flint Lockwood from the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Movie.
