While on their way to the Winter Reaccreditation exercise being held at June Lake Ski Resort on Saturday March 2nd, members of the Altadena Mountain Rescue Team put their Sheriff's training to good use.
Five members of the team stopped off at a local market on their way to the exercise at June Lake Ski Resort from the hotel. It was at this market where members were approached by a female in the parking lot. She was obviously distraught and showed signs of abuse. Although shaken, the victim was able to convey to members of the team a rough description of the suspect. Moments later the suspect was spotted in the trees behind the building. Two sworn members of the team were able to detain the suspect until units from the Mono County Sheriff's Department arrived to take him into custody.
With the suspect in the custody of local law enforcement and the victim in good hands, the five members of AMRT joined the rest of the team at the winter reaccreditation exercise, where they collectively earned a nearly perfect score for the day.
