North Okanagan prolific offender arrested

Enderby man nabbed by police in connection with a string of thefts in the area

Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP officers have arrested a prolific offender allegedly in breach of his conditions and recovered stolen property linked to several thefts in the Enderby area.

The arrest came Dec. 13 after officers attended the Cedar Park Inn near Enderby, where they located the man and arrested him without incident. A search incidental to the arrest led officers to find multiple credit cards and forms of identification on the suspect that were linked to numerous thefts in the area, police allege.

“This male is well known to police and has had multiple charges in the past in relation to similar offences,” said RCMP spokesperson Const. Kelly Brett. “The stolen property that was recovered during the arrest has been linked to at least 10 different victims and files currently under investigation by the RCMP.”

The Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP want to remind the public about the importance of reporting thefts, regardless of the value of goods stolen. In this case, officers said they were able to link this individual to at least 10 different theft reports throughout the North Okanagan, which provides further evidence to the court that charges are warranted.

Jordan McCann, 28, from Enderby, has remained in custody since his arrest.
