Crime Stoppers’ info on unsolved crimes in Central Okanagan

Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers have released information and photos on recent unsolved crimes in Lake Country, Kelowna, and West Kelowna.

Lake Country:

A log splitter was taken from a residence on the 11,900 block of Okanagan Centre Road East in Lake Country during the first few weeks of January. The missing tool is a Ryobi yellow, black and silver log splitter with unknown serial number.


Similar Ford F-350 trucks have been reported stolen since the beginning of February.

On Feb. 7, a red 2002 Ford F-350 crew cab was stolen from in front of a business on the 2600 block of Enterprise Way around 4:00 a.m. The truck has BC plate number MJ1878 and VIN 1FTSW31F22EC55380. All keys are accounted for. On Feb. 6, the second truck was taken from in front of a residence on the 600 block of South Crest Drive. Again, a Ford F-350 which was locked and all keys accounted for. This F-350 was a black 2003 model with licence plate number MH9214 and VIN 1FTSX31P23EC88578.

A 2012 orange KTM XC-F 3550 bike was stolen from a parkade on the 3100 block of Via Centrale in Quail Ridge between Jan. 8- 9, 2019. The bike was locked with a heavy chain and wheel lock, which was cut through with bolt cutters. The VIN of the bike is VBKMXL432CM178507. Video surveillance caught two suspects and their red and black truck with a distinctive black tubed rack.

West Kelowna:

An alarm was activated at a market located on the 5800 block of Beach Avenue in Peachland at 4:30 a.m. on Feb. 6. Surveillance confirmed the break-in with two suspects entering the store and stealing cigarettes, lotto tickets, jerry cans and liquor. The suspects are described as a clean-shaven Caucasian man wearing a tan jacket with black sleeves and a female wearing a dark jacket with two reflective strips on the front. The truck they are driving is a red Dodge pickup with a silver toolbox in the back and a black headache rack with lights.

A truck fire was reported by an auto detailing shop on the 2000 block of Old Okanagan Highway on Jan. 30. Multiple fire trucks arrived on scene to the rapidly growing fire that had spread to four vehicles and slightly to the building. Investigators deem the fire as suspicious as it may have been a fuel theft gone awry.

Any information on any of the unsolved crimes can be directed to Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), to the Crime Stoppers website, or to the RCMP.
