Mounties on Quadra Island are investigating after a man who was banned from BC Ferries vessels was caught aboard a ferry wearing a disguise Sunday.
The RCMP detachment says officers were called after the man was spotted by BC Ferries staff “wearing what was obviously a wig,” a scarf, and sunglasses.
The man also “spoke in an odd high-pitched accent that was either Australian or British,” the RCMP said in a statement Monday.
When officers arrived at the ferry, the unwelcome traveller refused to cooperate with police and fled on foot, leaving his wig and mask behind on a trail, police said.
The RCMP say the man is well known to police and the investigation is ongoing.
