Prolific offender arrested in Hope

Local outdoors group eyes suspicious activity, alerts police in Hope

  • Mar. 9, 2012 2:00 p.m.

A local outdoors group may want to change their name to Flock of Eagles. When the Herd of Turtles Four Wheel Drive Society caught sight of some suspicious activity out in a remote area, they decided to report it to the Hope RCMP.

They reported seeing three people with what they believed to be stolen property.  As a result, the Hope RCMP apprehended the suspects. One of the suspects was Warren Carlson, a Chilliwack prolific offender.

Police seized several hundred dollars worth of stolen property, as well as a snowmobile.

Carlson, 44, has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime, as well as breach of undertaking.

Carlson is expected to be in court for an arraignment on March 20, and charges are being considered for the other two suspects, both men.

“Police want to thank the witnesses in the 4×4 club who assisted immensely in this investigation,” said Corporal Tammy Hollingsworth.  “This proves, once again, that the best eyes and ears for the police are the public.”

The incident happened on February 25 at about 5 p.m., near Silver Skagit Road.
