Two men arrested following Oliver break and enter

March 12, 2020 - 11:14 AM

Oliver RCMP have two men behind bars after a break and enter followed by a hit and run in that community.

A towing company in Oliver called police on March 10 around 3:30 p.m. after an employee interrupted two men attempting to break into the towing yard compound, according to an RCMP media release.

The two men rammed their vehicle into one of the tow trucks when confronted, and drove away to the community of Willowbrook west of Oliver.

A tow truck employee followed the suspects until their vehicle’s truck overheated, RCMP said. The suspects then fled on foot into the mountains prior to units from Penticton Traffic Services, the Targeted Enforcement Unit and two police dog services arriving on scene.

Police dog searches resulted in the location of both men who were arrested and charged with break and enter, breaching probation, prohibited driving and hit and run.

Marcus Sheena of Olive and Clayton Bone of Penticton were held in custody prior to appearing in court yesterday, RCMP said.
