OSOYOOS MAN GETS JAIL AFTER STEALING THE SAME TOWN TRUCK TWICE
A man arrested for stealing a Town of Osoyoos truck in January was arrested again two weeks later for stealing the same truck. Cary James Norman, 37, of Osoyoos pled guilty in court Feb. 5 and was sentenced to 90 days in prison and one year probation.
Osoyoos RCMP say the 1992 Chevrolet pickup truck was stolen Jan. 17 from the parking lot at the Sonora Community Centre. Later that day, RCMP located the truck in Osoyoos and arrested Norman.
Then on Feb. 2, RCMP received a new report that Norman was again spotted driving the same Town of Osoyoos truck. Police located him with the truck driving in Penticton.
Norman was remanded to appear in court on Feb. 4 and 5 to answer to the original charges and additional charges of theft and possession of stolen property under $5,000.
Sgt. Kevin Schur, commanding officer at Osoyoos RCMP, says the same truck has previously been stolen by others.
