Later that afternoon, members of the Kelowna RCMP Target Team located the stolen Rav 4 in an alley in downtown Kelowna, where the driver was arrested.

“Further investigation led our officers to be able to link the suspect to all three of these incidents,” said Cpl. Guillaume Tanguay, an officer with the Kelowna RCMP Target Team.

“He was held in custody and brought before the court and was remanded.”

The B.C. Prosecution Service has approved charges of three counts of break and enter, possession of stolen property over $5,000 and possession of stolen property under $5,000 against Bradford Cummins.

RCMP say the investigation remains ongoing, and they urge anyone with information about the alleged crimes to come forward.
