The recent heat wave has seen an increase in users of the many beautiful beaches in the area and a popular spot is the Okanagan Rail Trail to access the west side of Kalamalka Lake. On Sunday August 16th, 2020 at approximately 2pm, front line officers from the Vernon North Okanagan Detachment responded to a report of a man behaving erratically near the 3 km marker. The witness was concerned because the man was acting inappropriately and many families with young children were using the trail.

Our officers located the man in the bushes and confirmed the observations of the witness. said Corporal Tania Finn, Media Relations Officer for the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP, The man was found committing an indecent act and was arrested.

A 32 year old man from Lake Country is facing charges of indecent acts contrary to section 173(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada. He was released from custody in order to appear in court at a later date.
