Kelowna – A man is in custody after the Kelowna RCMP Target Team located a stolen truck following a robbery in Lake Country.
On October 7, 2021 at approximately 11:00 p.m., the Kelowna RCMP Target Team was conducting proactive enforcement when they located a black Dodge Ram pickup truck that had been reported stolen earlier that day after a male suspect allegedly assaulted a woman in Lake Country. Investigators followed the vehicle to the 3000 block of Lakeshore Road in Kelowna, at which point the male driver was observed exiting the vehicle and was taken into custody without incident.
Following his arrest, a search of the man located quantities of suspected fentanyl and methamphetamine, states Sgt. Desmond Kiehlbauch of the Kelowna RCMP Street Enforcement Unit.
The man was also allegedly in breach of various orders previously imposed on him by the courts and had outstanding warrants for his arrest out of multiple jurisdictions throughout British Columbia.
As a result of the investigation, the BC Prosecution Service has charged 41-year-old Robin Rochemont with the following offences:
- One count of Robbery contrary to Section 344 of the Criminal Code
- Three counts of Fail to comply with order contrary to Section 145(5)(a) of the Criminal Code
- One count of Possession of a scheduled substance contrary to Section 4(1) of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act
Mr. Rochemont remains in custody at this time and the investigation remains ongoing.
