KELOWNA - Police say he was packing a Colt handgun, a knife, drugs and cash when he climbed aboard an underpowered scooter and putted into Kelowna last week.

Marshall Hunter, a 32-year-old man from Lake Country is facing multiple charges after he was pulled over while driving a stolen scooter as it turned into Millbridge Park off Gordon Drive Aug. 14. A plain clothes officer was waiting to detain Hunter after the Kelowna RCMP Target Team noted the scooter was on the road with uninsured plates. Police soon discovered the scooter had been stolen from a home on the 1200 block of Ethel Street in June. The last time the licence plate was registered was 2005.

Mounties then searched Hunter and found various drugs, cash and a knife. The Colt handgun was located somewhere on the scooter. It was stolen from a home on the 800 block of Kinnear Court, Aug. 7.

Hunter has been charged with break and enter and commit, five counts of possession of stolen property, possessing a prohibited weapon without licence, occupying a vehicle in which there is a firearm, two counts of theft and two counts of possessing a controlled substance.

He will remain in custody and is scheduled to appear in court today.
