2:30 p.m. update: The person alleged to have taken the photos has been located. The RCMP are not saying more about the file.
11:30 a.m. story: Kelowna RCMP are looking for your help in locating a man caught taking pictures of a house on Speer Street last month.
Cst. Kris Clark says shortly after 1 p.m. Oct 7, police were called to the home in the 2200 block of Speer Street.
"An unknown man had attended a residence, entered onto the property and began photographing the house," says Clark.
"The resident became concerned and confronted the man who advised her to mind her own business before walking away."
The woman was able to take pictures of her own of the man before he left the scene.
Clark says it was not known what specifically the man was trying to photograph, but indicates there is a likelihood he could have been trying to get shots of the interior.
"It seems if you enter someone's property to take pictures then that's a very good likelihood. He could take a picture of a house from across the street, but to get up close like that is quite strange," says Clark.
"It was just very odd entering onto someone else's property, taking photographs and dismissing it as none of their business. Quite concerning."
