Dear Friends, Neighbours and Community Members,
On Aug. 16, at 11:01 a.m. Trail and Greater District RCMP received a report about a 25-year-old Trail man who attempted to steal approximately $1000 worth of items from a local store located in the 1600 block of Marcolin Drive in Trail.
Nelson Police said officers have identified and arrested 36-year-old male in connection with the August 28, 2021, grass fire near Highway 6/3A and below the Alpine Motel.
The fire was quickly extinguished by Nelson Fire & Rescue Services members.
