KELOWNA – A man staying at a hotel on Harvey Avenue didn’t realize his truck, suitcase and bottle of liquor were stolen until the next morning.

The man, whose identity is not disclosed in a Crime Stoppers media release, arrived back to the hotel room in the early morning hours, went to sleep, and when he woke the next morning found someone had entered through a sliding glass door.

The truck, a grey 2012 GMC Sierra Crew cab has a silver dry box that held approximately $3,000 worth of welding tools. It also has a 50” light bar on the roof, black fender flares, chrome running boards, silver rims and a “Hi-Tech Redneck” sticker on the back window.

“Also stolen from the truck was some hockey gear, gym clothes and a Canucks blanket,” the release says.
