Prolific offender caught in Kelowna bait car

Kelowna police nab repeat offender in a Bait car:

A convicted car thief who is well-known to Kelowna police was arrested inside an RCMP bait car earlier this week.

Kenneth Fawcett, 37, is originally from Fort St. John but according to a media release from RCMP Const. Lesley Smith, is “a well-known prolific offender” with a lengthy criminal record for vehicle and property thefts.

Shortly before 10 p.m. April 8, RCMP were notified that one of their bait cars had been started.

“Dispatch was able to provide live video feed updates as the male suspect drove northbound towards Lake Country,” Smith says. “Once police were in a tactically safe position, the vehicle’s engine was disabled and the sole male occupant was taken into police custody without incident.”
