Small price for freedom?

One of the men charged in an Okanagan theft ring made an appearance in Kelowna Provincial Court on Monday.

David James Bourque, 35, had been remanded to the Kamloops Regional Correctional Facility but received his conditional release this morning.

He has been charged with various counts of possession of stolen property along with break and enter in connection to a number of thefts from businesses in West Kelowna last year.

As per consent of his release, Bourque must pay a $1000 recognizance fee and report to a Kelowna bail supervisor upon his release within the next 48 hours.

He must also adhere to a curfew of 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. and have no contact with his co-accused, 40-year-old Timothy John Carrod.

Bourque’s release also stipulates that he cannot be found in possession of any tools or weapons suitable for breaking into buildings, vehicles or residences.

His next court date will be for arraignment in two weeks.
