Clinton man charged with having stolen ATV

Man arrested for riding stolen ATV on Kally Lake Rd.

Charges of Possession of Stolen Property were laid against Clinton resident William Balice on June13.

Clinton RCMP received numerous complaints about Balice and his associates riding All Terrain Vehicles (ATV) on private property and on public roads in the past, but the formal charge stem from an incident that occurred on April 14.

On that day, a Kelly Lake Rd. land owner stopped three males trespassing on his property and held them on site until the RCMP arrived.  Upon arrival the officers noted that Balice was riding a different ATV then usual and after verifications, it was determined that the Honda ATV was stolen.

Balice was arrested and brought back to cells where he was later released on a Promise To Appear in court. The two other riders were charged with trespassing and operating an ATV on private land without the owner’s consent.

Balice is scheduled to appear in court on June 25 in Kamloops.
