VERNON - A couple of suspects thought they’d try hiding from police behind some bushes, but they didn’t cover their tracks very well.

After getting called about suspicious activity in the area of L&A Road and Cools Road in Vernon on Feb. 7, police followed some footprints in the snow and discovered two men attempting to hide behind a nearby bush, RCMP spokesperson Const. Kelly Brett says in a release.

The men were allegedly “casing out” the area in a white Pontiac Grand Prix, Brett says.

“It was the quick thinking of the local residents that led police to the area, where the suspect males were ultimately hiding in bushes attempting to evade police,” Brett says. “The white Pontiac vehicle was in fact reported stolen out of the Kamloops area and there is no doubt the suspect males were looking to continue their crime spree.”

The two suspects were taken into custody without incident.

Cameron Bob, 34 and Ryan Exner, 37, both of Kamloops were charged with numerous counts of possession of property obtained by crime and failing to comply with probation orders.

Their next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 22 in Vernon.
