Woman accused of setting traps on North Shore bike trail pleads guilty

VANCOUVER – The 64-year-old woman accused of setting traps along a North Shore bike trail pleaded guilty on Monday.

Mountain bikers started noticing the traps on two trails on Mount Fromme last August. Logs and rocks were found obstructing the trails.

Two bikers took it upon themselves last December to purchase, install and monitor security cameras in the hopes of catching someone who was intentionally setting up barricades on the trails.

Tineke Kraal was arrested Jan. 4, 2015, after allegedly being caught on camera laying the hazards across one of the trails in January. She pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of mischief and will be sentenced in four months.

Fortunately no one was seriously hurt or injured in these incidents.
