WEST KELOWNA —  RCMP are on the lookout for separate suspects in two truck thefts that occurred two weeks ago.

On May 22 a welding truck was stolen overnight from a home on the 2500 block of Neufeld Crescent. The grey and white 1997 Dodge 3500 flat deck had a Miller Welder on the deck. The truck was recovered on Trepanier Road the next day, but the thief made off with the welder and tools, valued at about $25,000. The welder is a blue Miller Trailblazer 325 (s/n MD010467R). The tools include a new 400 piece socket set, welding helmet, chop saw and 100 feet of welding cable.

Fire crews and RCMP wet called to the site of a truck fire on Vineyard Drive at about 1 a.m. May 24. A 2001 white Ford F350 was recently stolen from the 1700 block of Mountain Avenue and was involved in a flight from police just prior to being set on fire. The truck was driven by a male in his 20s and a woman passenger. Witnesses say they saw a man flee from the vehicle and run into the bushes on the 3400 block of Ridge Boulevard.

The man is described as 5'10", 170lbs, wearing all dark clothing and a toque.
