“The RCMP investigation revealed the company from which the personal watercrafts were rented and later returned to,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey in a news release.

“Anonymous tip information from the public also aided in the development and eventual conclusion of the police investigation.”

The man is accused of operating a vessel in a careless manner and failing to give name of vessel or name and address of authorized representative after a collision.
