On April 27, the RCMP were provided with video footage of a man attempting to break into a car on Parksville street.
Sicamous RCMP recognized the man as 26-year-old Sheldon Odd. An officer recognized Odd walking in Sicamous after the video footage was submitted and attempted to arrest him.
Odd fled but was captured minutes later in the yard of a nearby residence. He was charged with theft and resisting or obstructing a peace officer. He appeared in a Salmon Arm courtroom on April 30 where he pleaded guilty to the charges.
Odd has a history of arrests and convictions for property crime. On Oct. 10, 2017, he was convicted of theft under $5,000 in Salmon Arm on April 25 of that year. In another court appearance on Oct. 24, 2017, he was convicted of breaking and entering with intent to commit an offence on Sept. 9.
