Stolen truck recovered
A 37-year-old Grand Prairie, AB man is facing an auto theft charge after police recovered a stolen vehicle while investigating a report of a possible impaired driver overnight.
Shortly before 1 a.m., Kelowna RCMP received a report of a possible impaired driver leaving the area of Eldorado Road.
According to witnesses, the driver had difficulty starting the Dodge pickup before leaving the scene.
Police located the truck on Lexington Drive at Gordon Drive where they initiated a traffic stop.
The driver was found to be sober but he was taken into custody as police were quick to discover that the vehicle had been stolen from a Biggar Road home on July 5.
Ryan Phillip Lessoway has been charged with Theft of Motor Vehicle and is expected to appear in Court sometime today.
