The man was taken into custody while driving a stolen car

On Jan. 16 shortly before noon, RCMP officers took a man into custody in the Salmon Arm Industrial Park on suspicion of involvement with property crimes.

Officers in marked and unmarked police cars arrested the suspect, who is in his mid 30s, because he is associated with complaints where a suspect used stolen credit cards at local businesses. He was also driving a vehicle which police believe was stolen from the Vernon area at the time of his arrest.
