Kelowna RCMP had their hands full last night, tracking down two dangerous men wanted for multiple offences. 

The first man, linked to an assault earlier this month, was arrested yesterday around 8 p.m. in Glenmore on the 1800 block of High Road. The RCMP Street Enforcement team, with the help of their dog service and a helicopter, caught the 38-year-old Sicamous man at a notorious drug house. There was a stand off, and police blocked off the road to ensure the public's safety.  Eventually the man came out of the residence, surrendered and was taken into custody.

Another man, also wanted for outstanding charges, was pulled over by police at the intersection of Springfield Road and Benvoulin Road. The 24-year-old Penticton man was driving a red Pontiac Grand Am, violating his driving prohibition. When police searched the man, they found a supply of Methamphetamine. 

The Kelowna RCMP say they are committed to reducing crime in the community and will continue to target prolific and dangerous offenders, as part of the city's Crime Reduction Strategy. RCMP also thank members of the community who helped them with their search.
