It’s all fun and games until the cops get called.
Sunday night just past 8 p.m., the RCMP detachment received a call about a suspicious vehicle parked near the intersection of Victoria Street and Cedar Avenue in downtown Trail.
The complainant spotted the words “HELP ME ” written, actually stuck on, the side of the vehicle in duct tape.
The person then called and reported it to police. Trail RCMP attended the scene and located the 36-year-old Fruitvale man who owned the vehicle. The man said he had decorated his vehicle for Halloween with fake blood and the duct-taped words “HELP ME.”
The man agreed to remove the duct tape after officers explained that it was a little too scary and might cause more calls of concern to the police.
