At 4:00 AM on Wednesday morning a caller reported his vehicle was being stolen from his yard on Carr’s Landing Road.  The caller had been sleeping and was awoken by the noise from the engine starting. When he got up he realized that his house had been entered and that his car keys were missing.

About eight minutes later, an RCMP officer , patrolling the area, observed and stopped the vehicle. The driver and the passenger were both arrested and transported to Kelowna detachment. They were released later in the afternoon on a promise to appear with August court dates. They are facing Theft of Auto and Break and Enter charges.  Both males are from Kelowna and, are known to police and have related criminal histories.

The 1988 Plymouth Reliant has been returned to the complainant.
