KELOWNA - A  man wanted warrants for property crimes was caught while in the act of committing another in Kelowna yesterday.

RCMP says officers were called to a theft in progress at about 10:19 a.m., Nov. 15, at an undisclosed business in the 1500 block of Banks Road.

"Officers arrived on scene and located their suspect inside the stores bathroom, where he was allegedly removing store product from its packaging and concealing the items on his person," Cpl.

"Mounties arrested their suspect and determined that he was wanted in British Columbia on several outstanding warrants, mostly related to property crimes, issued for his arrest."
