UPDATE: 3:40 p.m.

A suspect wanted Canada-wide was nabbed in West Kelowna, Monday.

Police were called to a home on the 2800 block of Scharf Road for a break and enter in progress just before 9:30 a.m. The suspect is believed to have committed additional break-ins in the area.

Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says calls from the public led officers to their suspect.

“When confronted, the suspect fled from police on foot. After a long trek through difficult terrain, he was taken into police custody by general duty officers with the support of Kelowna RCMP Police Dog Services.”

The 31-year-old West Kelowna man was also wanted on Canada-wide warrants. He remains in custody. 


ORIGINAL: 1:50 p.m.

Multiple homes in the Glenrosa area of West Kelowna were broken into Monday.

Residents quickly spread the news on two community Facebook pages, Glenrosa Community Shop, & Talk! and Westbank Shop N’ Swap.

It appears a man dressed in a hoodie and black hat broke into at least three homes about 1 p.m.

One person posted that the man stole a six-inch knife from his home and believed the suspect was armed.

“Just reported him to 911, he was sitting in my neighbour's yard just minutes ago,” said one person about 1 p.m.

RCMP have yet to comment on the incidents, but there are reports a man was arrested from the area with the aide of a dog team.

Castanet is heading to the scene and will update with more information.
