A report of a man driving erratically in central Revelstoke last week resulted in the recovery of a stolen vehicle and the arrest of one man.

The incident happened in the early morning hours of Wednesday, May 21, on the 1100 block of Vernon Avenue, when RCMP received a call of a vehicle being driven erratically.

RCMP found the vehicle nearby and learned it had been reported stolen out of Calgary the previous day.

The driver, Brandon Lee Michaud of Calgary, was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000, driving without a licence, driving without due care and attention, and for being in a motor vehicle when he was not permitted.

He appeared in Salmon Arm Court and was being held in Kamloops jail awaiting releasee on bail.

Two youths, aged 14 and 15, were released without charges to their parents in Alberta.
