Police have issued another warning about a 75-year-old man who claims to be a kinesiologist.

Phony kinesiologist still at it in Nelson

Nelson police have told a man who claims to be a practitioner of applied kinesiology to quit presenting himself as a legitimate business.

Nelson police have told a 75-year-old man who claims to be a practitioner of applied kinesiology to quit presenting himself as a legitimate business.

Police say they received a complaint Monday from staff at a local shop of a “suspicious older man” hanging out and making them uncomfortable.

He offered his services to the women and gave them a business card.

Police have previously warned about him, and 103.5 The Bridge reported the man claimed his healings would bring “sexual satisfaction.”

Despite his official-looking cards, he’s not a trained practitioner.

He showed up in Nelson in March, but is known to police throughout the Kootenays.

Arrest in construction zone

A boy was arrested Monday after police responded to a report of youths kicking over signs in the construction zone in the 1000 block of Stanley Street.

Two boys were located nearby and detained. One was taken to jail for being drunk in public, and while there “exhibited bizarre behavior.”

He was taken to Kootenay Lake hospital by ambulance in case he had overdosed on street drugs. Police say he’s since been committed under the Mental Health Act until the cause of his behavior can be determined.

Hitchhiker arrested

An 18-year-old man hitchhiking on Highway 6 toward Salmo was arrested Friday after police found him drunk.

He was found to be on probation for a serious assault in Salmo and in breach of a curfew and an order to stay away from booze.

He was held in custody until he sobered up and released pending a July 23 court appearance in Nelson.

Ex-boyfriend arrested

A local man was arrested Monday for uttering threats against an ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend.

When police arrived, he was found drunk and passed out in front of his home, contrary to a probation order from previous charges.

He was jailed until sober for court that day.
