A man was arrested after being caught driving a vehicle that was reported stolen from Sicamous on Wednesday.

Revelstoke RCMP say that on Wednesday, Dec. 3, at around 6:45 p.m., a white pickup truck was reported stolen from a home in Sicamous.

The vehicle was spotted by police while heading eastbound on the Trans-Canada Highway. Police stopped the vehicle at Taft Road, near Crazy Creek, and the driver, a 21-year-old from Barriere, B.C., was arrested.

A further investigation revealed the man was also suspected of car prowling in Salmon Arm earlier that day. He was eventually charged with two counts of theft under $5,000 and two counts of failing to comply with his probation order. He was ticketed for driving while prohibited, possession of open liquor and driving contrary to restrictions.

He is scheduled to appear in Revelstoke court on Wednesday, Mar. 4, 2015.

The RCMP stress the importance of locking your motor vehicle and securing your valuables, especially at this time of year when cold weather can lead to crime of opportunity.
