This is why you shouldn't steal from a church parking lot in Kelowna

KELOWNA – A church goer’s prayers were answered when a pastor spotted their stolen truck in Kelowna last Friday.

Just after 2 p.m. on March 4, a full size Dodge pickup truck was taken from the parking lot of a church in the 3200-block of Gordon Drive. Approximately three hours later the pastor of the church told police he spotted the stolen truck being driven in the area of Pandosy Street and Raymer Avenue.

A media release from RCMP says the truck now had stolen licence plates and was towing a trailer also suspected to be stolen.

Police stopped the driver on KLO Road and two men were taken into custody. One of the suspects was in possession of a controlled substance.

“The trucks driver’s side door lock and ignition were both damaged during the theft,” Const. Jesse O’Donaghey says in the release. “RCMP are continuing efforts to confirm whether or not the trailer with Seadoo was in fact stolen.”

A 38-year-old man and a 34-year-old man, both with no fixed addresses, are facing potential charges of possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000, and possession of a controlled substance.
