On October 8th at approximately 3:30 pm, a plain clothes officer from the North Okanagan RCMP observed a stolen vehicle drive onto a residential property on Canyon Road in Enderby. When police approached the vehicle, the suspect drove to a dirt road and into the bush. The suspect continued to drive into the bush until the vehicle became disabled and the suspect took off into the woods on foot. Officers then requested the assistance of the Vernon North Okanagan Police Dog Service.

"The track led police through dense bush and eventually to a residence on Canyon Road where the suspect was located," stated Constable Chris Terleski, Media Relations Officer for the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP. "The suspect was taken into custody without further incident."

A 27-year old Enderby man is in custody charged with flight from police and possession of stolen property.
