KELOWNA - At least three vehicles at a downtown Kelowna parkade were broken into Monday night, prompting RCMP to release a description of the man they believe may be responsible.

Just after 9:30 p.m. on April 4 a witness told police they saw a Caucasian man with short, spikey hair breaking into a truck in the Library Plaza parkade on Eillis Street and Doyle Avenue, Const. Jesse O’Donaghey says.

Officers set up containment of the area and a police dog was brought in to search for the suspect, who was reportedly wearing a brown coat.

“At least three vehicles were reported to police as entered or broken into having loose change stolen from inside,” O’Donaghey says in a media release.

The release does not say if the dog was able to track a suspect or if an arrest was made but it does request help from the public.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Const. Paul Bentham of the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
