Strange behaviour attracts cops in West Kelowna

KELOWNA - Acting in a strange manner was all it took for police to arrest a man sitting in the driver's seat of a stolen vehicle on Saturday.

Kelowna RCMP spokesperson Const. Jesse O’Donaghey says in a press release a 31-year-old Kelowna man was taken into custody around 11 a.m., Aug. 13.

O’Donaghey says police were responding to reports of a man acting strangely and causing a disturbance in the 4000 block of Gellatly Road.

When police arrived, he says the man was found sitting in the driver’s seat of a blue Honda Civic that had been reported stolen overnight from Richter Street in Kelowna.

Police say the man could be facing a variety of charges including possession of property obtained by crime and failing to comply with a probation order.
