Surrey man facing charges after Enderby arrest

A Surrey man is facing a pile of charges after being stopped by an alert RCMP officer Friday.

The officer stopped a blue Ford Bronco on Highway 97B near Mayfair Road in Enderby at 1:30 p.m., then learned that the vehicle’s licence plate had been stolen.

“The driver was detained for possession of stolen property,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.

“At first, the man falsely identified himself to our officer.”

The plates were confirmed stolen and, after a bit of questioning, the man properly identified himself. This caused the man further problems as he had outstanding warrants in Surrey.

The 42-year-old man was arrested for possession of stolen property, obstructing a peace officer and charged with four counts of driving while prohibited.

The outstanding warrants from Surrey were for two counts of failing to comply with a probation order and were added to his North Okanagan charges.

The man was also issued violation tickets under the Motor Vehicle Act for having no insurance and no vehicle licence. He also received a seven-day vehicle impound notice

“Our office is attempting to confirm if the vehicle is stolen,” said Molendyk.

The suspect has been remanded in custody in Vernon pending a court appearance.
