RCMP are asking for the public’s help in finding 14 stolen fishing boats that could still be floating around Kelowna.

Police received a call from a business in the 800 block of McCurdy Place on June 27, that boats had been taken from a locked compound.

Among the missing Marlon Jon Boats are seven 10-footers, six 12-footers, and one 14-footer. Though they were behind a fence, they were visible from Highway 97.

“This theft is a significant loss to this business, especially coming out of a pandemic and going into what should be the height of their busy season,” said Cst. Mike Della-Paolera.

Anyone in the area between June 20-27 that may have witnessed any suspicious activity, or may have seen a truck carrying multiple matching boats, is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 and reference file number 2023-36184.

“This area of town is extremely busy with vehicle and pedestrian traffic, so if anyone has dash camera recordings or information on who might be responsible, please contact the Kelowna RCMP,” said Della-Paolera.
