Kelowna RCMP find drugs after stopping stolen car

A Kelowna man is arrested after drugs were found in a stolen vehicle Monday morning.

A Kelowna man is being sent to Kamloops Regional Correctional Facility after being arrested for allegedly having drugs in a stolen vehicle on Monday morning.
Around 2:15 a.m. on Monday, a police officer spotted a black Honda sedan driving on Laurier Avenue near Gagnon Place and, after checking the licence plate, discovered the vehicle had been reported stolen on Feb. 20, said Const. Steve Holmes.
The officer then followed the Honda and coordinated with other police officers to box in the vehicle and stop it on Highway 97.
The driver, identified as 21-year-old Kyle Wade Kohlman, was arrested. When he was searched, police say they found 118 tablets of what is believed to be MDMA or ecstasy.
Officers also learned Kohlman was prohibited from driving.
Kohlman appeared in court later on Monday on charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000, operating a motor vehicle while disqualified and possession for the purpose of trafficking.
He’s next scheduled to appear in court, via videolink, on March 3.
