Two men arrested for illegal hunting near Chelan


CHELAN- A Chelan County Sheriff’s Deputy confirms the arrest of two men earlier this morning after they were suspected of illegally shooting salmon with crossbows in the Chelan River.

The two men had reportedly fled from a State Fish and Wildlife officer who observed them in the Chelan Falls area.

The Deputy says the Sheriff’s helicopter happened to be in the air at the time conducting a training flight and it was used to help track down the two suspects.
