Billy Miner is heading to jail again — well, the ghost of the legendary train robber, at least.

Larry Foss, who longtime Kamloopsians know as the actor who portrayed Miner with the 2124 Heritage steam train rides, will be dressed in costume and arrested by local police on Wednesday, Nov. 27, for the RCMP’s Jail and Bail fundraiser to benefit the Thompson-Nicola-Cariboo United Way campaign.

Miner may have a guitar-toting, train-robbing buddy with him, Foss said, to serenade the thief while he waits for his bail to be posted.

Anyone wanting to sponsor Miner can go online to the Jail and Bail website and, under the sponsor an individual tab, search for Billy Miner.

• Rumours persists that Kamloops This Week’s Dale Bass will also be arrested on Wednesday.

Spare her a few dollars as well, as she will be needed back in the newsroom to edit some copy.
