Police tight-lipped about chase in Kaleden

Police continue their search today along Pineview Drive in Kaleden for clues following a police chase that ended in the community late yesterday afternoon.

PENTICTON - It was anything but an ordinary day for many residents in Kaleden after witnessing a large police presence in the community yesterday afternoon.

Pineview Drive resident Ryan Elphick said he was on his way home from work yesterday, Feb. 14, around 4:30 p.m. to find every entrance to Kaleden blocked off by RCMP.

Elphick says he was told by police last night a woman had been arrested following a police chase.

“As far as I understand, the woman wasn’t a resident of Kaleden,” he said.

Several officers could be seen combing Pineview Drive again this afternoon, Feb. 15. Police wouldn’t say what they were looking for.

Court records indicate Amanda Sach, 28, made an appearance in Penticton court this afternoon. She has been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

Her next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 17.
