VERNON - RCMP failed to catch an accused criminal in Sicamous but did arrest another man who tried to drive away from the scene.

Yesterday, Jan. 2, numerous police officers tried to arrest 28-year-old Michael Trosky who they thought was at a home on Kappel Street in Sicamous.

While keeping the home under surveillance police noticed a man, who they thought was Trosky, leave in a vehicle with a woman, according to an RCMP news release. They boxed the man in with police vehicles which included causing damage to the driver’s side.

The man was not Trosky but was arrested and later released for prohibited driving. The vehicle was impounded for seven days. The female was not charged.

Officers then searched the house but did not find Trosky.

Trosky is wanted for charges that include Evading Police, Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Failing to Comply, Breach and Theft of Mail. He’s wanted by police in Salmon Arm and Dawson Creek on warrants for two separate flights from police.

He’s described as 6’2” (188 cm) tall, weighs 186 pounds (84 kg) with black hair and brown eyes.

Given his behavior in the past, Trosky is considered a threat to the public. The RCMP ask that anyone with information about his whereabouts contact their local police services. If he’s seen, police ask the public to call 911 and do not approach him.

Or they can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 should they wish to remain anonymous and receive a cash reward.
