A Vancouver man had a change of heart after a heroin-induced “vision” and turned himself in for stealing a motorcycle.

A Vancouver man had a change of heart after a heroin-induced “vision” and turned himself in for stealing a motorcycle.

Aaron Vereschagin is facing charges of theft and break and enter after turning himself in for the theft of a motorcycle.

On Sept. 29 police received a call for a motorcycle collision involving a suspected stolen vehicle near the Penticton Art Gallery. The person who called in the collision was no longer at the scene.

Officers later located a lone male walking near the Channel Parkway on the shoulder of the road. He told officers he had a “change of heart from a vision (he) had after taking heroin,” and turned himself in to police for stealing a motorbike from a residence in Hope.

The man was arrested for the break and enter of a Hope residence and the theft of a 2011 Honda motorcycle and was cooperative with police.
