Kelowna police say person of interest around local schools cleared up

RCMP believe teens intentions were not criminal after report on Oct. 20 about suspicious activity around schools

RCMP say they have cleared up a person of interest report around local schools.

RCMP are pleased to confirm that the person of interest, previously reported as attending Central Okanagan schools on October 20th, has been positively identified by investigators after he came forward to speak with police.

“RCMP strongly believe that any potential risk has been reduced, even eliminated thanks to the conversation police were able to have with the man,” says Cst. Jesse O’Donaghey. “The discussion has provided us with clarity into the teen’s intentions, which has satisfied investigators that they were not criminal in nature.”

The police investigation has now been concluded as no criminal offence had believed to have been committed.

The RCMP wish to thank the media and the general public for their assistance.
