Theft from vehicle prompts police search

Kelowna RCMP are asking for assistance in locating missing property

On April 16, 2017 shortly after 9 a.m., the RCMP received a report of a theft from a vehicle parked in a hotel parking lot located in the 1100 block of Harvey Avenue in Kelowna.

Sometime between 10 pm.. on April 15 and 8:30 a.m. on April 16, a thief or thieves gained access to a locked white Ford F350 pickup truck. A window left rolled down may have been a factor, as there were no signs of forced entry as the vehicle was later found undamaged.

· a white Helly Hanson ski coat;

Kelowna RCMP would like to remind residents, “don’t be an easy target, lock your vehicle, remove valuables or keep them out of sight and always report suspicious activity to police,” said Cpl. O’Donaghey.
