A Sparwood man appeared in court in Cranbrook yesterday after being held in the Kamloops Regional Correctional Facility.

“It’s pretty unusual that someone wouldn’t be held locally to await trial,” said Const. Sheena Fulton of the Elk Valley RCMP.

Elk Valley RCMP arrested Randall Peter Hopley last month.

The Elk Valley RCMP received a report on April 27 that Hopley was suspected to be in violation of his bail ordered conditions.

The RCMP located Hopley and he was arrested. He went before a judge and was remanded in custody in Kamloops.

Fulton said that Hopley has caused quite a bit of trouble locally.

Hopley appeared yesterday for charges of assault, and three charges of failing to comply with court ordered conditions.

Since May 2002, Hopley has been found guilty of two breaking and entering charges, and a charge for theft of $5,000 or under.

He was also arrested in the Crowsnest Pass in May 2010 after he was found living in someone else’s cabin and was in possession of several stolen items including ATVs, trailers, a camper, generators, vehicle batteries, gas tanks, propane tanks, electronics equipment, food, and furniture.
