The Penticton RCMP have released images of a vehicle believed to be connected to recent catalytic converter thefts.
The vehicle is described as a beige/white Chevrolet Tahoe, with a temporary operator’s permit on the corner of the back window. The vehicle is also described as having a “very loud muffler.”
RCMP said that the vehicle has been associated with multiple people. One of the thefts is believed to take place Monday morning in Penticton’s Wiltse area around 7:20 a.m.
The suspect Tahoe was spotted at the Sun-Oka beach parking lot in Summerland on Sunday where a vehicle had its catalytic converter stolen in broad daylight. Witnesses told the vehicle owner, a group of a men in a brown Chevy were the suspects involved.
In recent months a spree of catalytic converter thefts have hit the South Okanagan.
A different vehicle is believed to have been connected to a pair of catalytic converter thefts from Keremeos in February.
Anyone with information that could help the investigations are asked to contact their local RCMP detachment at 250-492-4300 for the Penticton detachment or 250-499-5511 for Keremeos.
