Arrest The Best
Arrest the Best is proudly sponsored by Okanagan Restoration Services & Vernon Dodge! Arrange to have your friend, boss or enemy arrested! To make it even easier we deliver the jail directly to you! You set their bail, and it’s up to them to collect donations in order to earn their freedom! Arrests are made and jail time is served right outside your business for maximum exposure. All funds raised go to support the Vernon Winter Carnival Society.
Thanks to everyone who participated with Arrest the Best 2019!
