Police investigated an incident that resulted in  a vehicle leaving the roadway and coming to a rest at the top of the bench on Second Avenue on the weekend.

There was nothing suspicious about the vehicle, which apparently had been driven inappropriately prior to its leaving the road and hanging up on the steep embankment. No charges are being contemplated over the incident.

On Sunday morning around 8 a.m., RCMP in Kerermeos were notfied of a vehicle theft in Keremeos. Approximately 15 minutes later they received word that a vehicle has been spotted in a canyon off the Fairview – Cawston road.

Police responded to the scene where they found the vehicle located at the bottom of the canyon floor. There were no occupants in the vehicle, and it appeared, after investigation that the car had been involved in a collision further up the road. The car had then been rigged and sent over the edge of the precipice.

During the course of their investigation, police found evidence linking a suspect(s) to the theft. The investigation is continuing.
