Kelowna RCMP Target Team arrested a man from Kelowna in possession of a stolen truck and flat-deck trailer from Alberta.

Kelowna RCMP Target Team, was conducting an investigation into stolen vehicles when they recovered a stolen truck attached to a flat-deck trailer. The flat-deck trailer had been reported stolen in August 2021, from a business in Wabamun, Alberta. The Chevrolet pickup truck had been reported stolen from a residence in Millet, Alberta. October 2021.

On November 9, 2021, Kelowna RCMP Target Team along with the assistance of Police Dog Services (PDS), arrested a 48-year-old man from Kelowna in the 2600 block of Ethel Street for possession of the truck and flat-deck trailer.

Kelowna RCMP Target Team subsequently executed a search warrant at a residential property in the 800 block of Raymer Rd in Kelowna in relation to this investigation. On the property, police recovered a stolen Ford F150 that had been reported stolen in June 2021, from Vernon, British Columbia.

It is common practice for criminals to use stolen vehicles to commit offences and for these vehicles be moved from one province to another, said Cpl. Tammy Lobb. This is an example of criminal activity having no boundaries.

The accused has since been released from custody on an Undertaking to appear in Kelowna Provincial Court on February 14, 2022. The accused is facing charges of Driving while Prohibited under the Motor Vehicle Act and numerous criminal charges, including possession of property obtained by crime will be recommended to the BC Prosecution Service.
