North Vancouver RCMP has confirmed that a 64-year-old woman was arrested for wrecking North Vancouver mountain biking trails in light of video evidence collected and provided by two individual bikers. RCMP confirmed to have arrested the woman on Jan. 4 after witnessing the video that showed her putting rocks and logs on a difficult stretch on Mount Fromme. The woman now faces charges including setting a trap and mischief to property.

The two resident bikers who collected the video alleged to have repeatedly noticed changes to the trail that would put riders at risk between Aug. 1 and Dec. 29. Thereafter, the pair bought, installed and monitored security cameras in the area to finally catch the culprit. Vice-president of North Shore Mountain Bike Club, Trevor May, applauded the efforts of the two individuals who performed a “sting operation” to catch the culprit obstructing the trail. He mentioned that “when you’re going down this trail, Skull, it’s a steep double black diamond trail,” adding that “so when you go over an edge and there’s a log there, there’s very little time to react. It’s quite dangerous.”

Additionally, May said that several incidents of this nature were being reported by several different individuals. He stated that “I just think it’s good someone was caught,” because “maybe it will deter other people from doing such actions. Now that they know people could be secretly watching them.” Meanwhile, North Vancouver RCMP Cpl. Richard De Jong said that the woman has been released for the moment but will appear in court on Feb. 4.
