Alleged van thieves caught in Kelowna

A getaway van didn't get far into Kelowna before Mounties caught up with it and arrested a roving pair of alleged thieves.

The Kelowna RCMP received a report of a suspicious vehicle on the 800 block of Dalton Road,  June 12 at 8:20 a.m.

"A grey Dodge Caravan had been parked there for a couple days and it was believed that people were squatting inside," said Const. Kris Clark.

"When police attended, they found that the vehicle had been stolen from Valemount last week."

Two men, later identified as Codee Mullin, 18, and David Mills-Gladu, 18, fled from inside the van but police were able to quickly catch and arrest Mulin. Mills-Gladu was later apprehended by a Police Service Dog on Houghton Road after a lengthy foot chase.

Mills-Gladu received medical attention for minor injuries he obtained during his flight and subsequent apprehension.

Both were held in custody to appear in Court early Wednesday.
