A wanted Kelowna man has been arrested and is in police custody after being found behind the wheel of an alleged stolen vehicle.

On Oct. 20, just before 5 p.m., Kelowna RCMP was notified that a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck had been stolen from the 400 block of Rutland Road South, according to an RCMP press release.

The following day, Oct. 21, an officer saw the vehicle being driven in the Rutland area. Officers flooded the area and located it in a parking lot along Highway 33. The two occupants were arrested for possession of stolen property without incident, according to the RCMP.
