Teneycke charged with robbery

After a manhunt in the South Okanagan came to a dramatic conclusion Thursday, Ronald Arthur Teneycke is facing charges of robbery.

Police are asking the public not to approach Ronald Teneycke and to call 911.

After a manhunt tore through the South Okanagan, Ronald Teneycke is now facing charges of robbery and using an imitation firearm to commit an indictable offence.

The prolific offender is also facing one count of being unlawfully at large and three counts of breaching probation.

Teneycke was consent remanded to the Kamloops Regional Correctional Facility Friday.

On July 16, Oliver RCMP attended to a complaint of an armed robbery in the 6400 block of Park Drive. An unknown man entered the store and produced a weapon. From the description provided, police said they believe it to be similar to that of Teneycke.

Emergency Response Teams and police from multiple detachments searched the Oliver area for Teneycke and the manhunt came to a dramatic conclusion in a Cawston orchard Thursday.

Teneycke was originally sentenced to a 90-day jail term for possessing explosives contrary to a court order in April. After Teneycke was admitted to the hospital, his sentence was suspended in due to health reasons.

After pleading with the court to suspend his sentence longer, Judge Gregory Koturbash ordered Teneycke to resume his sentence after he failed to prove he was physically unfit to serve.
