On August 11 the Nakusp RCMP executed a search warrant of a local residence and  arrested 42 year-old Thomas Dill.

Corporal Jason Burndred explains that the search warrant was enacted when the detachment “received some information that Mr. Dill was in possession of a firearm of some kind and was using it in a threatening manner.”

Dill has been charged with numerous offenses including unauthorized possession of a firearm, pointing a firearm, possession of Marihuana for the purpose of trafficking, and possession of property obtained by crime. Dill will remain in custody until his next court date on August 18.

Burndred would like to assure the community that the Nakusp/Slocan Lake RCMP is committed to working in partnership with the community to reduce property crime offences.

“It is one of our priorities; property crime is a devastating crime and it affects a lot of people, especially in small communities. One of the things that I would like to ensure is done is that when there is property crime we do everything within our ability to make sure files are investigated thoroughly and where at all possible, people are charged for offences and property is returned to the victims.”


The RCMP encourages community members to report property crime.
