Hummer recovered while searching for stolen Ford F350

Kelowna Police are looking to recover a stolen truck and identify a suspect after it was taken from Orchard Park Mall parking lot Monday.

On October 21, 2013 at 3:10 p.m., the Kelowna RCMP received a report of a stolen vehicle from outside the Milestone’s Restaurant in the Orchard Park Mall parking lot.

While conducting the search for the Ford F350, police located a black Hummer that had been reported stolen earlier that day.

Near the intersection of Keithley Road and Knorr Road, police initiated a traffic stop and the driver of the Hummer pulled over immediately. No pursuit was ever initiated for either vehicle.

The stolen Ford F350 is described as:

  • Harley-Davidson Edition
  • Black with red flames on the side
  • Bearing BC plate EP2947.

The suspect is described as:

  • Caucasian male
  • Approximately 30 years old
  • 6′ tall and 230 lbs
  • Light blonde hair.
