B&Es lead to multiple arrests

Two people have been charged and four others may face charges after all were arrested in connection to a pair of unrelated break-ins on Wednesday.

The first incident was reported just before noon when a resident returned to their home on Paradise Valley Drive. An unknown man was inside the home and fled the scene in a purple Dodge Stratus.

Police found the car on Thacker Drive and arrested the 36-year-old Spallumcheen man who now faces potential charges of break and enter, assault and obstruction.

Later that same day, five people were taken into custody around 6 p.m. in West Kelowna when police responded to a break and enter in progress.

Police say witnesses saw five people going into a home in the 2300 block of Marshall Road and were later seen loading a tool box and computer into a red Honda Civic.

All five people were still at the scene when police arrived and all were taken into custody. The driver of the car, a 25-year-old Penticton woman, was found with a power drill and pry bar in her purse.

She faces potential charges of possession of break in instruments and has been held for court. She could also be charged with break and enter. The other suspects were all released pending a further investigation but could also be charged with break and enter.
