Two subjects arrested after deer traps damaged

Two males were arrested around 2:30 a.m., February 27 after several deer cull traps were damaged in Kimberley.

Two suspects were observed damaging a trap and fled on foot to a vehicle.  A vehicle description was obtained and a short time later Cranbrook RCMP members located the vehicle on side road south of Kimberley.  Two males were taken into custody.

A search of the vehicle located several items police believe were used to damage the traps.

A search by a police dog located netting from the traps hidden in the bush near where the subjects were arrested.   Four traps were damaged; the subjects are facing charges of Mischief and Wearing a Disguise while committing an offence.

The two males from Invermere were go before a Judicial Justice of the Peace by way of teleconference later Thursday.
