Three arrested near UBCO

Three young men were arrested near UBC Okanagan Wednesday night, because police believe they were up to no good.

At 5:15 p.m., someone called police about a suspicious vehicle driving in the 700 block of Academy Way.

“Our frontline officers became very concerned when they learned that the vehicle occupants had seemingly taken steps to conceal their identity and obstruct their vehicle's licence plate,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey of the Kelowna RCMP.

Police arrived on scene and arrested two 18-year-olds and a 20-year-old man inside the vehicle.

“A number of items, that police believe could have been used as weapons, were seized from inside the vehicle,” Cpl. O'Donaghey said.

“As a result of further investigation, RCMP have reason to believe that the three suspects had been prepared to carry out a criminal offence.”

It's unclear what led police to believe they were preparing to commit an offence. 

The three men were held in custody overnight and they each face potential charges.

Police have asked anyone with any information about the incident to call them at 250-762-3300.
