Three men have been arrested following a home invasion on Alder Street in Summerland on Aug. 9.

At 7:45 p.m., Summerland RCMP received a call about a home invasion in progress on Alder Street.

The resident saw a van drive onto the property.

Four individuals, with masks covering their faces and weapons in hand, left the vehicle.

The house occupants left through the back door and called police from a neighbouring house.

The four suspects had left the scene before police arrived.

Officers with the Kelowna RCMP Street Enforcement Unit, including members of the Kelowna RCMP Drug Section, set up a surveillance point on Highway 97.

At 8:15 p.m., police spotted the van travelling north in West Kelowna.

Three men, aged 25, 33 and 41, were arrested without incident.

Police say a search of the van provided evidence that the suspects were involved in the home invasion.

Police are continuing to search for the fourth suspect.

The three men were held in custody and appeared before a justice of the peace. Two were later released on conditions, while the third is still being held in custody.

Police believe this was a targeted incident.
