Kelowna RCMP round-up

Halloween home invasion:

The Kelowna RCMP are investigating a home invasion and have several suspects in custody for the offence which occurred over Hallowe'en night.

Mounties received a report of a home invasion on the 1300 block of Belaire Avenue, Nov. 1 at 12:15 a.m.

"The report indicated that two unknown men entered home with guns and threatened the occupant. The woman fled the residence and called 911. Police were able to track the suspects to a nearby house and affect arrests. The suspects remain in custody at this time," said Const. Kris Clark.

The investigation is ongoing and no charges have yet been laid.

No injuries were reported.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, online at www.crimestoppers.net or text to CRIMES (274637) ktown.

Stolen goods need a home

The Kelowna RCMP continue their efforts to identify the owners of thousands of dollars in recovered tools.

"An estimated $10,000 worth of property had been recovered in September during an investigation into stolen items being sold online. Several owners were initially identified with their property being returned, but many recovered tools still remain," said Const. Kris Clark.

Jessica Anne Bryde has been charged with Possession of Stolen Property Under $5000 and Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking Property. She is scheduled to appear in Court on Nov. 19.

If anyone had tools stolen from you sometime this summer in the East Kelowna area, and can identify them, please contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.

Stealing from the needy

A 23 year old Kelowna man remains in custody, charged with theft after allegedly stealing a Tim Horton's Camp Day coin box earlier this week.

The Kelowna RCMP received a report of theft from the Tim Hortons in the Orchard Park Mall, Oct. 29 10:30 a.m.

"Apparently at about 5 am that morning, a man and a woman entered the coffee shop and, while ordering food, the man cut the security cable from the Camp Day charity coin box," said Const. Kris Clark.

" The man concealed the coin box and left the scene on foot. Video evidence revealed a suspect to police who was later identified and arrested for the offence."

Christopher David Katona has been charged with Theft Under $5000 and remains in custody. He is scheduled to appear in Court on Nov. 6
