Clarification: Trap trasher pleads guilty

Sikora fined for Kimberley trap incident, not Cranbrook

  • Sep. 18, 2014 10:00 a.m.

In Tuesday’s Daily Townsman, it was reported that Lucky Sikora, who was charged with mischief to property over $5,000 after an incident with deer traps, pleaded guilty and was fined $800 and must pay a victim surcharge of $240 and restitution of $1,000.

The story stated that the incident in question was in relation to deer traps tampered with in Cranbrook. In fact, Sikora was charged with willful damage to traps set up in Kimberley, not for the Cranbrook incident.

There have been no charges laid with respect to the 10 traps that were stolen and subsequently burned in Cranbrook.

The Townsman apologizes for the misinformation.
