Kelowna restaurant robbed by suspects who climbed through drive-through window

April 20, 2020 - 12:44 PM

One person was injured early Saturday morning after two men climbed through a drive-through window at a Kelowna restaurant and stole a number of items.

The incident happened just before 5 a.m. Saturday, April 18, as workers were preparing to open the restaurant in the 1900 block of Kane Road in Glenmore, according to a Kelowna RCMP media release. RCMP do not say which restaurant was robbed.

The worker, who suffered non-life threatening injuries, was taken to hospital and released.

The suspects got away in a vehicle but officers on the scene were able to get a description and licence plate number.

The suspect vehicle was involved in an incident with another vehicle at approximately 10 a.m. on Avery Road and then a short time later it was spotted in the Chute Lake Road area.

“The two males attempted to evade police, first in their vehicle and then on foot,” Kelowna RCMP Cpl. Stuart Smith says in the release. “Both men were taken into police custody following a foot pursuit.”

Two Okanagan men, Michael Norton, 45, and Anthony Roberts, 42, are being held in custody and have been charged with several offences.

They are expected to appear in court tomorrow, April 21.
