KELOWNA - A Prince George man was arrested by Kelowna RCMP following a commercial break and enter early this morning.

Police received a call about a break and enter in progress around 3 a.m. today, Oct. 16, at a commercial property in the 1900 block of Moss Court, according to an RCMP media release. Police chased a suspect who was seen running from the area, but he got away.

Officers set up a containment area and found a second suspect following a search.

A 39-year-old Prince George man was arrested and later found to be wanted on several outstanding warrants. He faces several additional property and drug related charges.

“Investigators, who believe the men were targeting tools and gasoline, also believe that the suspects were responsible for cutting large holes in the compound’s fencing to gain access,” Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says in the release.
