Penticton woman arrested of suspected break and enter

A Penticton woman was one of five people arrested suspected of a break and enter in West Kelowna.

Shortly after 6 p.m. on May 28 the West Kelowna RCMP responded to a break and enter in progress at a residence on the 2300 block of Marshall Road. According to RCMP witnesses, five people were seen going into the residence and loading a tool box and a computer into a red Honda Civic.

Const. Kris Clark said suspects were still there when police arrived and were quickly taken into custody. Among them, the driver, a 25-year-old Penticton woman, was found to have a power drill and a pry bar in her purse.

The Penticton woman faces charges of possession of break in instruments and was held for court. All five of the suspects face potential charges of break and enter, but Clark said four were released pending further investigation.
