KELOWNA - RCMP believe they have the culprit responsible for a crime spree in West Kelowna earlier this year.

RCMP say David Daniel Huck, 25, faces multiple charges after investigators linked him to a house fire on March 26 at 1191 Peak Point Dr. and an armed robbery March 28 at Antler Creek Outfitters, both in West Kelowna.

The investigation, which was based in West Kelowna, took officers to the Lower Mainland and Prince George, as well as Merritt and Kamloops, according to an RCMP media release.

“The evidence gathered was sufficient to effect an arrest and support charges,” Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey says in the release. “RCMP investigators have since recovered two firearms in Prince George, allegedly stolen during the Antler Creek Outfitters robbery.”

On Friday, June 2, the investigation culminated in the 10 RCMP officers converging on Huck in Kamloops. He was taken to Kelowna by police where he was in court today, June 5.

O’Donaghey says there was a second suspect, but that person is now dead. Police aren't saying how the suspect died or if their death is connected to the investigation.
