RCMP looking for group that performed multiple grab and dashes in Orchard Park Mall

Kelowna RCMP is searching for a group that performed multiple grab and dashes for thousands of dollars worth of electronics.

Just before 3:30 p.m. on December 12th, RCMP received a report of a theft that was committed from the Best Buy a part of Orchard Park Shopping Centre. Police officers were told by a store employee that a group of as many as six people grabbed electronics and fled from the store on foot.

After speaking to several witnesses, police learned that the suspects were last seen at an apartment building on Durnin Road. While responding to the initial call for service, police learned of a similar grab and dash style theft from two more businesses in the mall.
