RCMP: How scary is too scary?
A Trail man got a visit from police last weekend after a resident saw a frightening sight, according to Trail RCMP top cop Sgt. Mike Wicentowich.
“On Sunday, Oct. 23, at 8:02 p.m., Trail and Greater District RCMP received a complaint about a suspicious vehicle parked near the intersection of Victoria Street and Cedar Avenue in Trail,” Wicentowich said. “A member of the public had noticed someone had written ‘HELP ME’ on the side of the vehicle in duct tape. (The person) then called and reported it to police.
Trail RCMP officers attended the scene and located the 36-year-old Fruitvale man who owned the vehicle.
“The man said he had decorated his vehicle for Halloween with fake blood and the duct-taped words ‘HELP ME’. The man agreed to remove the duct tape after police explained that it was a little too scary and might cause more calls of concern to the police.”
