RCMP officers arrested a 34-year old man after receiving multiple calls from the public about an erratic driver in Vernon yesterday.  On Sunday, January 28th, 2024, around 11:30 a.m., police received several calls from the public about a small black car that had committed a hit and run and was being driven dangerously in the city.  Frontline officers responded and using the information from the callers, located the suspect vehicle parked at a residence in the 4000-block of 32nd Ave.  Through the course of the investigation, the driver was identified and arrested for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

We want to thank everyone who took the time to report this to us, states Constable Chris Terleski, Media Relations Officer for the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP. Dangerous, impaired, and other forms of aggressive driving puts everyone at risk and should be reported immediately to police. The information and assistance you provide helps us take drivers like this off the road.

The 34-year old Vernon man was later released from custody and is scheduled to make an initial appearance in court at a later date.
