Combative shoplifter sought

Police are searching for a shoplifter who turned combative inside a Kelowna store.

A store loss prevention officer witnessed a man stealing various unpaid items including vitamins and batteries inside a store located in the 1900 block of Harvey Avenue on Wednesday at about 4 p.m.

When the officer approached the man to arrest him, he turned combative.

“The suspect, who was captured on the stores video surveillance system, was last seen running southbound across the highway from the scene,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.

The loss prevention officer sustained minor injuries during the incident.

Police said the suspect is a slender Caucasian man and was wearing black pants, black jacket, a grey hoodie, a black bike helmet with a headlamp across his forehead, yellow shoes and a white and black backpack.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 and cite police file number 2018-1677.
