Stolen vehicle and ATV recovered: three arrested

Three people are currently in police custody awaiting a court appearance after being arrested in relation to a stolen vehicle in Vernon yesterday.  

On Monday, August 22, 2022, the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP received a report of suspicious activity in the parking lot of a business in the 4900-block of 27th Street in Vernon. The suspects departed the location in a white Ford van as police arrived at the location. Based on information from witnesses, the investigating officer quickly determined the van to be one that had been stolen from a business in Vernon over the weekend.  A member of the public spotted the van driving erratically north of the city and with the assistance of an RCMP Air Services helicopter, police trailed it to a location on Irish Creek Road where officers arrested the three people associated to the vehicle without incident.   Along with the van and other property, police also recovered a stolen ATV.

32-year old Justine Pihl of Vernon, 31-year old Andrew Pouliot of Armstrong, and 29-year old Bryce Inglehart of Vernon, are each charged with 2 counts of possession of stolen property and 3 counts of failing to comply with a release order.

Police are continuing their investigation.
