RCMP in Kelowna are once again turning to the general public for their help, as investigators look to further their investigation by identifying a person of interest in an alleged mischief and attempt theft from motor vehicle.

On September 1, 2018 just before 7 am, RCMP responded to a report of an overnight attempt theft from vehicle parked in the private laneway of a residence located in the 1000 block of Toovey Road in Kelowna.

According to video surveillance installed nearby, the incident occurred just before 5 am earlier that morning, states RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. The surveillance cameras captured the unknown female as she crept into the carport structure, that the Ford Explorer pickup truck was parked inside of and opened the seemingly unlocked driver’s side door.

It is believed that the female suspect rummaged through the vehicles interior before she allegedly stole and undisclosed amount of loose change from inside the vehicle.

She is described as a Caucasian female, of slender build, with light brown or strawberry blonde hair, wearing a black jacket, a pair of blue jeans, a set of knee pads and a pair of bright pink shoes.  Image taken from video surveillance which shows the female suspect inside the carports as she approaches the drivers side of the Ford Explorer pickup truck.
