KELOWNA -  Kelowna police have recovered a stolen excavater taken in mid-November thanks to public tip information.

A 36-year-old Kelowna man has been taken into custody while in possession of the stolen excavater, a media release says. He was arrested on Dec. 12 and now faces potential charges of being in possession of stolen property obtained by crime.

The excavater was stolen on Nov. 18. That afternoon, at 3:04 pm, Kelowna RCMP were called to investigate a theft from a work site located at the corner of Dilworth Drive and Enterprise Way. The suspect acted quickly and fled the area northbound on Dilworth Drive.

“The excavator, which was seized by police, has since been returned to its rightful owner," Const. Jason Clarke says in the release. “The Kelowna RCMP Target Team would like to thank the members of the public who assisted in the successful recovery of the stolen excavator.”
