VERNON, B.C. – A Hudson’s Hope man was arrested by Vernon North Okanagan RCMP following the theft of a dump truck.
According to RCMP, they received a report, on May 15, of a theft of a vehicle in progress located in the 9500 block of Eastide Road, Vernon B.C.
RCMP say while en-route to the area, front line officers were advised a suspect male had allegedly stolen a dump truck full of gravel and was driving at a high speed.
A short distance later, the driver lost control of the truck which flipped onto its side, losing its load of gravel, causing the road to be blocked.

A 42-year-old Hudson’s Hope man remains in custody and faces possible charges of theft of a motor vehicle.
