RCMP arrest five teens in stolen vehicle

Five teenagers aged 16-19 arrested in stolen vehicle at Revelstoke Shell station on Sunday morning.

A long-weekend trip to the Shuswap ended in arrest for five teenagers when they were caught in a stolen vehicle at the Revelstoke Shell station on Sunday morning.

The incident happened on May 20 at about 8 a.m. when members of the Revelstoke RCMP and Trans-Canada East Traffic section located a 1996 Plymouth Neon that had been reported stolen in Calgary two days earlier.

Const. Gary McLaughlin said the teenagers, aged 16-19, made an improper left turn into the gas station. Police ran the plates and determined the vehicle was stolen.

The youth were arrested without incident. Police seized alcohol, drugs and weapons from the vehicle.

All five people were charged with various offences, including possession of property obtained by crime and various breaches of conditions from previous offences.

They were released and are schedule to appear in Revelstoke court in August.

The vehicle was returned to its owner by the RCMP.
