Two men are in custody facing a long list of charges related to a week long crime spree in Central Okanagan earlier this month.

A Kelowna member of the RCMP says a driver provided a false name during a random evening traffic stop Feb. 9 and was later found to be in possession of stolen property, including the Nissan Xterra he was driving—apparently purchased using another person's identification that was found in his pocket.

The man was identified as Cody Parent, age 21. He was arrested for obstruction and possession of stolen property.

The investigation was taken on by the Kelowna Property Crime Unit when Parent became the suspect of a sting of break-ins where access cards to apartment buildings were stolen and storage lockers in underground parking were ransacked. The unit recommended several other charges from Enderby and Vernon as well.

Parent is currently charged with 14 counts including possession of stolen property, fail to comply with probation, obstruction, fraud over $5,000, personation, break and enter with intent, theft over $5,000, theft under $5,000 and mischief. He appears in court today.

Parent and a 31-year-old man from Lions Bay face more charges in connection with nearly 20 different investigations in the Kelowna area.

The investigation is ongoing.
