KELOWNA - Over $3,300 of property was taken from a truck in downtown Kelowna and police are looking to the public for help solving the theft.

The theft happened on the weekend between 10 p.m. Saturday, April 15 and 8:30 a.m. Sunday, April 16 in the parking lot of a hotel on the 1100 block of Harvey Avenue, according to an RCMP media release.
