A Shuswap man facing charges in relation to a bizarre crash and fire at a Salmon Arm 7-Eleven has been released on bail.
Kenneth Laforge was granted bail by a judge on Wednesday.
He was released on 23 conditions, including requirements that he not go to the 7-Eleven in Salmon Arm or possess drugs or alcohol.
The Shuswap man in his late thirties is facing three charges in connection to the August, 2018 fire, when a motorist allegedly drove a vehicle into the Salmon Arm 7-Eleven, put gas on the vehicle and the store and lit a fire.

A psychiatric assessment, discussed at a previous court date, suggested crystal meth may have been involved in the incident.
The case is back in court on January 29 for an arraignment hearing.
The 7-Eleven remains closed.
Laforge is charged with mischief under $5,000, arson related to inhabited property and arson damaging property.
None of the allegations have been proven in court.
