Mystery noise leads to police investigation

File # 2024-956

On Wednesday, March 13, 2024, frontline Trail and Greater District RCMP officers assisted an 82-year-old Trail woman who reported a loud machine-like noise reverberating through her residence on Devito Drive, in Trail, BC.

The officer attended the residence and heard the loud noise described by the elderly woman. After a short investigation, an officer located a central vacuum floor vent that was stuck open. He closed the vent, the central vacuum shut off, and the noise ceased.

Everyone shared a good laugh over the incident.

I would make a vacuum pun but it would probably suck, says Sgt. Wicentowich
