RCMP pull a blue car over Thursday evening in Kelowna.

Kelowna RCMP pull over vehicle with no licence plate, find drugs inside

Officers also responded to a white van in the West Kelowna Walmart parking lot with no insurance

RCMP attended two separate incidents involving vehicles with license issues on Thursday.

At about 6:40 p.m. in Kelowna, police pulled over a blue sedan, with no license plate, near the intersection of Ethel Street and Harvey Avenue.

The officer noticed drugs in the vehicle and a 50-year-old Kelowna man was arrested for possession of a controlled substance. The man was released from custody and will appear in court at a later date and the vehicle had to be towed from the scene.

Then in West Kelowna at about 2:30 p.m. police were called to check on the well-being of an individual associated with a white van parked in the Walmart parking lot at 2170 Louie Drive.

According to Cst. Solana Pare, officers noted a strong odour emanating from the vehicle and noted no response from inside.

“Concerned for the well-being of the individual associated with the vehicle, officers gained entry to the vehicle which was found to be unoccupied. The vehicle was towed for no insurance,” Cst. Pare stated.
