Police interrupt wanted man’s bath in Rossland

Cleanliness wasn't next to Godliness for a Surrey man captured by police while bathing, according to Trail RCMP Const. Sherri Karns.

"On April 19, at 12 p.m., Trail and Greater District RCMP arrested a 38-year-old man wanted in Surrey, BC, on three unendorsed warrants for his arrest," Karn said. "Front line Trail RCMP officers were made aware that the man may be hiding in the Rossland area, wanted on a multitude of serious violent offences.

"An investigation began and Trail RCMP was able to track him to a Rossland home where his bath was interrupted by the arresting officer, who then escorted him to the local detachment. A bail hearing was held and the man was remanded into custody."
