An Osoyoos man is dead after a motor vehicle collision on Highway 3 on Monday.

Osoyoos RCMP and South Okanagan Traffic Services attended the scene, approximately three kilometres east of Osoyoos, at 6:15 p.m. when a single occupant of a motorcycle went off the road and was ejected off his bike.

Cpl. Shana McLeod said the name of the male is not being released.

Road conditions at the time of the collision were bare and dry. The South Okanagan Traffic Services and BC Coroners Service are continuing their investigating.

Penticton RCMP said they had few major incidents happen on the weekend, both on the road or in terms of calls for service.

While there was a lot of traffic, RCMP said there were only minor vehicle incidents and driving complaints.

A theft of just over $15,000 from the Michael Hill jewelry store in Cherry Lane Shopping Mall had RCMP busy on Monday morning as they searched the area surrounding Athens Creek Towers on Atkinson for a male that dashed out of the Hudson Bay doors with three rings around 10:45 a.m.

“A service person brought out rings to show the person and the male grabbed them off the display board and fled on foot,” said Sgt. Rick Dellebuur. “He grabbed three princess cut rings all in white gold believed to be just over $15,000 in value.”

Dellebuur said the male is described as 5’10, medium build, short dark or brown hair, brown eyes and either caucasian or native. He was wearing jeans, running shoes and a grey/blue long sleeve shirt with a crest on the upper left chest area.
