Charges facing Trosky include evading police, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, prohibited driving, theft of mail and theft under $5,000.

Trosky is a suspect in a Dec. 17, 2018 incident in which a delivery driver was pepper sprayed and robbed near McGuire Lake.

Following the robbery, a white Ford pickup truck suspected to have been involved was the subject of a police chase through the North Okanagan. The truck fled when police attempted to stop it in Enderby. Police reported that during the chase, the suspect vehicle rammed four RCMP vehicles and three civilian vehicles, causing significant damage.

An RCMP air services unit and police dog unit eventually tracked the vehicle to a rural area northeast of Vernon and apprehended one of the two suspects in the vehicle. The other, who the police identified as Trosky, was not located.

Trosky was the target of an unsuccessful police raid on Kappel Street in Sicamous in February.
