A sixty-four year old woman has pleaded guilty to setting traps on North Vancouver mountain biking trails.
Tina Kraal, who was charged with “setting or placing a trap, device or other thing with intent”, pleading guilty to the lesser charge of mischief. It will be another four months before she is sentenced.
Police arrested Kraal in January of this year.
Members of the local mountain biking community came up with a plan to nab the person who had been terrorizing them on the trails.
They set up a video camera in an area where obstacles were being placed on a regular basis.
Ultimately, police say they found someone laying logs, branches, and rocks on the Quarry and Lower Skull trails, just off the 1200 block of Dempsey Road.
At the time of her arrest, the president of the North Shore Mountain Bike Association expressed relief, saying it had taken many volunteer hours to ensure the trails were safe for riders to use.
