It didn't take long for someone to find a stolen piece of property after the picture appeared on Castanet's front page.

A large cart used by the Downtown Kelowna Association for its summer Biz Patrol program, was stolen from a winter storage spot at the end of November.

Michele Spicer, DKA marketing and communications director, says they sent out a notice to local media outlets with a photo of the missing cart Wednesday morning.

“We got a call from a man with the Parks Department saying they had found the bottom part of the cart out of a lagoon near the Rotary marshes. The only reason he knew what it was is because he saw the photo on Castanet,” says Spicer.

She says the top part of the cart is still missing and they have reason to believe that it may be under water.

“The part which holds the brochures and the cart's canopy are still missing and the parks people believe they are in the lagoon. And since there is now an ice crust over the lagoon, it will be spring before we can go in there and look for them. At that point, they may very well be too damaged to be functional.”

Spicer says the value of the cart is purely in the labour of it and they will repair what can't be replaced.

The DKA's Biz Patrol program is summer program which sees local students working as ambassadors for downtown Kelowna businesses by handing out maps, restaurant menus and recommendations. The cart is the program's mobile office.
