KELOWNA - Kelowna RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a woman allegedly caught stealing loose change from the inside of a vehicle.

In a media release issued by police, RCMP responded to a call regarding an overnight attemptrf theft from a parked vehicle at a residence on the 100 block of Toovey Road just before 7 a.m. on Sept. 1.

“According to video surveillance installed nearby, the incident occurred just before 5 a.m.,” RCMP Cpl.
