A frontline officer located the alleged thief riding the stolen bike near the intersection of Harvey Avenue and Spall Road. Attempts were make to apprehend the suspect, but he fled on the bike.

The 24-year-old Kelowna man was located a short time later on the rail trail near Hardy Avenue and taken into custody. He has been released on conditions for a future court date. The investigation will be forwarded to the BC Prosecution Service for review and charge approval.
