The driver got out but injured – nothing life threatening.
Willowbrook Fire Department dispatched at 21:11 pm Saturday to an icy roadway near the Sawmill Lake Forest Service Rd
This was an RCMP vehicle on a call as confirmed by the Penticton detachment.
Prolific offender – 25 year old Osoyoos resident Tyson Joseph Ryan – picked up in Penticton after stealing a truck in Oliver.
On December 22nd, 2018, a suspect gained entry to a vehicle parked in front of a residence in the Town of Oliver.
He used the garage door opener left inside to open the resident’s garage. Keys, a wallet and the truck stolen.
Later in Penticton the suspect attempted to use a credit card but reported to police by the store clerk.
Extensive patrols were conducted by Penticton RCMP, which resulted in an Officer locating the stolen truck driving in the West Bench area. A foot pursuit ensued, and the Officer was able to locate and successfully take the accused into custody.
Ryan is well known to police in the South Okanagan. He was remanded into custody facing numerous charges, including break and enter, possession of property obtained by crime, theft of credit cards and breaching his probation order.

It may be winter, but the action doesn’t stop at Oliver’s attractive tennis courts. Local residents enjoyed the dry conditions and plus temperatures on Christmas Eve and took advantage of the opportunity for fresh air and exercise.

“The board of directors met on Thursday, December 20th and as this is an internal personnel matter, it is our policy not to discuss these personnel matters publicly,” Karla Kozakevich (Chair of RDOS board and director from Naramata) stated.
“The board of directors is working towards a positive outcome with the intent of the chief’s (Tony Trovao) reinstatement in January.”
At a meeting October 18 in response to complaints an investigation by an outside body was launched.
Trovao was suspended while the investigation was underway.
Trovao has been a member since 1998 and chief for the last five years.
Kon Oh, who was named acting chief of the Naramata Fire Department after Trovao was placed under suspension, said he – and the majority of the 41 members – were thrilled to learn of Trovao’s reinstatement.
Oh said he spoke with Trovao soon after the reinstatement decision was made and Travao was relieved.
Trovao has made no comment on the allegations, the investigation or the positive outcome of same.
