Quick justice after a prolific offender in the Greater Trail area led RCMP on a big chase over the weekend.
28 year old Clayton Bone from Kimberley was spotted driving a stolen vehicle in Rossland on Saturday.
Police closed in but he ran off at the Centennial Trail parking lot.
He then grabbed a kid’s mountain bike in the Alpine City and made his way down the Warfield Hill and into Trail.
He then escaped to West Trail.
A tip from the public led to his arrest – without incident – Sunday morning.
He was sentenced to fifteen months after admitting to several crimes in Nelson court on Tuesday.
Police now expect to see a major decrease in property-related offences especially in the Beaver Valley and Fruitvale areas.
