Be prepared to be taken into custody: Jail n' Bail is back in Penticton

FILE PHOTO - Penticton RCMP Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth rounds up detainee Columbia Elementary School Principal Jan Ramsey in last year's Jail n' Bail, in this file photo from June 17, 2015.

PENTICTON - Beware when you’re out and about next Wednesday in Penticton — you might find yourself behind bars.

The second annual Jail n’ Bail Fundraiser takes place June 15 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Last year, the event raised over $12,000.

You could arrange to have a friend, co-worker or boss 'arrested' by RCMP in a fundraiser for Regine Siemons and the Canadian Cancer Society. Siemons is a Penticton single parent who is battling cancer.

The RCMP will pick up the 'arrestee' with as much or as little publicity required, taken to jail until the requested bail amount is secured and arrangements for prompt payment made.

If you know of someone who should be arrested, the Downtown Penticton Association invites you to visit their Jail n’ Bail website and fill out a form.
