Wanted Kelowna woman arrested with stolen ID

November 17, 2020 - 9:02 AM

A 34-year-old Kelowna woman is facing charges after the RCMP arrested her after she allegedly committed a crime at a local business last week.

On Nov. 13, at approximately 10 a.m., the Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of a woman believed to be wanted for outstanding warrants inside a business located in the 1800-block of Cooper Road, according to the RCMP in a media release.

Police officers arrived on scene and found her in a nearby parking lot. After a brief chase on foot, officers arrested her without further incident.

RCMP officers identified the woman and determined she was wanted in B.C. on several outstanding arrest warrants, mostly related to property crime offences, according to the RCMP.

The suspect allegedly had multiple identity documents in her possession that investigators believe were stolen from the purse of an 82-year-old woman, who had been shopping at the business just before the suspect's arrest, according to the RCMP.

She remains in custody at this time, due to the outstanding warrants and faces new potential charges from the B.C. Prosecution Service for the suspected stolen property in her possession.
