PENTICTON - Two people are facing a variety of charges after they were caught in a stolen pickup truck near Summerland last week.

Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says officers noted the white Dodge had been reported stolen out of Kamloops when they spotted it around 3 a.m. April 29 near some trailers in Trout Creek. The vehicle was followed to Marron Valley Road where it was stopped by police.

Wrigglesworth says the driver was found to have a warrant for his arrest out of Kelowna. He was searched and a quantity of methamphetamine found.

The driver was charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000 and flight from police.

Wade Moran made a court appearance May 3, where he was denied bail. His next court appearance is May 10.

Wrigglesworth says a female passenger was charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000, failure to comply with an undertaking and possession of a controlled substance. She was released on a promise to appear.
