In case you missed it: Armed Kelowna man arrested in tactical RCMP takedown

A wanted suspect has been arrested by a tactical Kelowna RCMP team after allegedly pointing a firearm at two people.

Tactical RCMP members worked with plainclothes officers to arrest the suspect yesterday (Oct. 7) evening, a man believed by RCMP to be responsible for a series of violent interactions in recent months, in Kelowna and West Kelowna.

On Oct. 4, the Kelowna man allegedly pointed a firearm at two victims, before fleeing the area. He could not be located.

Police then learned that previously on April 22, the suspect allegedly pointed the firearm at them and threatened them the first time.

The 43-year-old was successfully arrested in Kelowna yesterday, and faces numerous criminal charges. He is in custody, and expected to appear in court today (Oct. 8).
