“Police have now positively identified their suspect as 32-year-old Dale Christopher MacPherson of Peachland,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey spokesperson for the Kelowna Regional RCMP, in a press release.

RCMP have since obtained warrants for several charges related to the incident, which include robbery, break and enter, assault with a weapon, pointing a firearm and use of a firearm to commit an indictable offence.

“Dale MacPherson is believed to be operating a white 2006 Mazda 3 hatchback with a dark grey coloured hood,” said O’Donaghey. “If spotted, the public is cautioned not to approach him and urged to contact their local police immediately, as MacPherson has a history of violence and should be considered as potentially armed and dangerous.”
