West Kelowna  

Caught napping, literally

A West Kelowna man with 13 outstanding warrants was arrested Thursday after falling asleep at a commercial property the night before.

Just after 8 a.m., employees of a business on the 1500 block of Stevens Road called police after finding a man on the property while they were opening the business.

While employees initially thought he had broken in, it turned out the 34-year-old had attended the business on Wednesday and fell asleep inside his vehicle.

The business closed for the evening, trapping the man inside until the next morning.

“When our officers arrived on scene and positively identified the individual, they subsequently executed a total of 13 outstanding warrants for his arrest out of Kelowna,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “Those warrants included charges such as breach of his release conditions, failure to appear in court and possession of a controlled substance.”

The man remains in police custody.
