Kelowna, B.C. crook needs lessons in subterfuge and footwear

Most criminals try to keep their nefarious deeds under wraps — and a Kelowna, B.C., suspect is finding out why.

KELOWNA, B.C. — Most criminals try to keep their nefarious deeds under wraps — and a Kelowna, B.C., suspect is finding out why.

The 27-year-old is accused of breaking into a home in the Okanagan city and stealing electronics, a pair of shoes and a van.

That was his first mistake.

His second was parking the van outside a known drug house and setting the vehicle on fire.

It didn’t take long for police to show up and a search of the home revealed a man hiding in the basement.

Investigators are fairly certain they have their man, since he was wearing the stolen shoes at the time. (CKOV)
