Kelowna Mounties successfully work to catch a thief

  • Feb. 14, 2011 8:00 p.m.

Just after midnight Sunday, Kelowna Mounties responded to an alarm at a Sexsmith Road Veterinary Clinic, and found the clues needed to track down the alleged burglar.

“A door had been forced open and so the police services dog was brought to the scene,” said Const. Steve Holmes.

“A scent track was followed man resulted in the location and arrest of an 18 year old Kelowna male, who was found in possession of break-in instruments… and $1200 worth of tools and equipment.”

The suspect, who was nabbed shortly before 3 a.m., is facing charges of Break and Enter, Possession of Break in Instruments and Possession of Stolen property.

Police are currently trying to figure out whether the suspect is connected to calls to several other commercial businesses where alarms were triggered.

He has been released, and is scheduled for a court appearance of early June 2011.
