Nelson man tries to storm armoury compound in Trail

On Wednesday, April 6, at 2:51 p.m. Trail and Greater District RCMP responded to a complaint that a 36-year-old Nelson man who was dressed in camouflage had attempted to enter the fenced compound at the 44th Field Engineering Squadron Armoury, in Trail, according to RCMP Sgt. Mike Wicentowich.

"The man had told someone at the armoury that he was attempting to get to the Ukraine, as it is believed that he wanted to join the Ukraine war effort," Wicentowich said. "Officers located the man and apprehended him without incident under the Mental Health Act.

"The man will remain in medical care until further notice."
