KELOWNA – Police have three young men in custody after they rolled a stolen SUV in Kelowna early this morning.

RCMP say they were called to the crash at about 5:12 a.m., July 25, in the 1700 block of Byrns road.

The Ford Explorer — which had been stolen from a driveway of a home in Rutland overnight — rolled end over end several times before coming to rest, according to a RCMP media release.

The three youths took off on foot into some fields south of the crashed SUV and were tracked down by the police dog, RCMP say.

“Three youth male suspects were taken into police custody without incident and examined at the scene by Emergency Health Services,” Const. Jesse O’Donaghey says in the release.

The suspects face car theft charges.

Anyone who witnessed the incident and hasn’t spoken to police is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
