Arrests made after spree of break-ins

Kelowna RCMP have arrested five people and recovered a number of stolen vehicles believed to have been used in numerous break and enters across the Central Okanagan.

The officer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, says they also recovered stolen property from one of the vehicles associated to a break and enter that happened last night at the Simply Computing store on Springfield Road.

They also say it is highly likely the group is linked to the previous break and enter at the West Kelowna location of Simply Computing on Dec. 15, where an estimated $100,000 worth of electronics was stolen.

One of the recovered vehicles – a stolen 2010 Dodge Ram valued at $105,000 – is believed to have been used in a break and enter committed at Best Buy earlier this week.

All five people in custody are scheduled to make their first court appearance in the coming days.
