VERNON - Vernon RCMP are looking to reunite various sets of keys with their rightful owners after the arrest of three suspects in an alleged stolen vehicle last week.

Officers located a suspected stolen vehicle in the 3000 block of 29th Avenue in Vernon on Wednesday, Oct. 10 shortly after 2 p.m., according to an RCMP media release issued today, Oct. 17.

Police arrested the three occupants from the alleged stolen Honda CRV that was originally reported stolen out of Salmon Arm, RCMP say.

As officers searched the vehicle, they recovered a significant amount of stolen property.

"In particular of interest to the police was a box full of keys that we believe to be stolen and are now searching for the rightful owners," Const. Kelly Brett says in the release. "Often keys are stolen out of cars, garages, and personal belongings and can be costly having to get home, business or vehicle keys re-cut or replacing door locks."

Louis Mcilvenna, 39, has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime, possession of identification documents and theft of credit card. Lexa Owen, 27, has been charged with possession of property obtained by crime and failing to comply with a condition of an undertaking.

A 50-year-old Vernon man who was also in the vehicle was released from custody and faces no further charges.

If you recognize any of these keys, call the Vernon RCMP detachment at 250-545-7171 and reference file number 2018-24211.
