Crown counsel has dropped theft charges laid against a Salmo police officer last year.
RCMP Cst. David Dyball, 44, was charged on Oct. 6 with two counts of theft under $5,000.
However, a stay of proceedings was entered on both counts last week in Nelson Provincial Court. The prosecutor who handled the case didn’t return a phone message from the Star.
The offences were alleged to have occurred in Salmo on April 9.
