KELOWNA - When Kelowna RCMP showed up to investigate a report of a stolen vehicle Tuesday morning they soon realized something about the man's story wasn't quite right.

The Chrysler 300 with Alberta plates was reported stolen at 11 a.m. from a home in the 1000 block of Bernard Avenue. Mounties say the 21-year-old complainant seemed reluctant to cooperate, an indication to officers there was more going on than he was sharing. Police searched for the vehicle but found nothing.

Later, at about 6:38 p.m., police were called to investigate a disturbance on the 300 block of Moubray Road. A man was apparently brandishing a hammer and yelling at the occupants of the home. A Chrysler 300 was parked nearby.

"The man allegedly smashed the sliding glass door, entered the home, and caused extensive damage inside," RCMP Const. Kris Clark said in a press release. "Police located the man, covered in blood and seemingly under the influence of drugs, on the street in front of the residence."

Police soon learned the man was the owner of the vehicle. The man's wounds were likely from the broken glass door, Mounties say. He was taken to Kelowna General Hospital for treatment and released into police custody.

Nobody was harmed during the incident.

The Kelowna man faces possible charges of mischief and break and enter. He remains in custody and is expected to appear in court Sept. 24.
