Two of four stolen Toyotas found


Two of the four Toyotas stolen from the dealership in Penticton last week, have been found.

Larry Pidperyhora, the general sales manager at Penticton Toyota, said a Rav 4 was found Tuesday in the 600 block of Winnipeg Street.

Penticton RCMP confirmed the find of the vehicle in a parking lot at an apartment building.

A woman saw it parked there, and it was retrieved and returned to Penticton Toyota, said Sgt. Rick Dellebuur.

Pidperyhora, said he heard late Wednesday afternoon, the second vehicle, the Toyota 4-Runner, was located  in the Rutland area.

Pidperyhora said the Rav 4 was in perfect health, and it appeared it had only been driven from the dealership on Skaha Lake Road to where it was found.

He is still awaiting word on the condition of the second vehicle.

There is still no information on the other two Toyotas that were stolen. The RCMP investigation is continuing, according to Dellebuur.

Last week, two 2014  Rav 4 SUVS, one 2014 Toyota 4-runner SUV and a Toyota Tundra pick-up were taken from the dealership.

Pidperyhora said he was hopeful he would get word soon.

"Most certainly we are hopeful and the RCMP are too," he said. "The RCMP have done an awesome job. It was most certainly a weird occurrence, I've never experienced anything like this before."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Penticton RCMP, at (250) 492-4300.
