Officer arrests man found slumped over in car
A 38-year-old Kelowna man was arrested Monday afternoon after an RCMP officer found him slumped over inside a stolen vehicle.
The officer was patrolling around Old Okanagan Highway, when she came across the man in the car. While checking on him, she found out that the car, a silver Honda Civic, had been reported stolen less than an hour before from a residence on Sutherland Avenue.
Police believe the car was taken sometime overnight from that residence.
The suspect was arrested without incident, and appeared in court on Tuesday to face potential charges. At the time of his arrest, he was also wanted on several outstanding warrants.
