RCMP recovered $3,000 worth of sporting equipment this week.

The equipment belongs to the Kelowna Minor Baseball league and was reported stolen earlier this month.

Police found the equipment in the abandoned locker of a suspect well-known to them. On March 1, Kelowna RCMP responded to a break and enter at Elk's Stadium on 663 Recreation Avenue. The property crime unit was called in to investigate and determined it was a targeted robbery.
