The Officer was successful in conducting a traffic stop with the vehicle and arrested an Alberta resident for theft. Further investigation determined that the vehicle was one of 12 stolen from a Fort McMurray, Alberta business. A subsequent search of the vehicle located a loaded shotgun. The male was transported to cells, and he was remanded until Thursday November 24, 2022.

“This male was also on several release orders from Alberta and clearly shows little regard for the courts or public safety,” said Cst. Mike Della-Paolera Media Relations Officer with the Kelowna RCMP.
