Kelowna – A man is in custody after the Kelowna RCMP Target Team located a stolen motorcycle on Tuesday night.

On October 6, 2021, the Kelowna RCMP Target Team was conducting proactive enforcement checks on a man known to police and found that he was allegedly breaching a court-imposed condition. Investigators began an investigation to locate and arrest the man for his failure to comply with court imposed conditions.

On November 16, 2021, the Kelowna RCMP Target Team located a black Suzuki motorcycle that had been reported stolen earlier that day. Investigators followed the vehicle to the 2200 block of Benvoulin Road in Kelowna at which point the male driver, who was also the man who was allegedly breaching his court imposed-conditions, was taken into custody without incident.

Following his arrest, a search of the man located quantities of suspected GHB, methamphetamine and prescription narcotics, states Sgt. Desmond Kiehlbauch of the Kelowna RCMP Proactive Enforcement Unit. The man was also allegedly driving while prohibited and in breach of various orders previously imposed on him by the courts.

As a result of the investigation, the BC Prosecution Service has charged 33-year-old Richard Daniel Hill with the following offences:

Mr. Hill remains in custody at this time and the investigation remains ongoing.
