File # 2017-72577

West Kelowna Mounties have positively identified the suspect they believe was responsible for the interrupted brazen daytime break and enter to a home in the Glenrosa neighbourhood of West Kelowna on December 4th.

On December 4, 2017 shortly before 2:50 pm, RCMP responded to a report of an interrupted residential break and enter to a home in the 3400 block of Turnbull Road in West Kelowna. Police had learned that the break and enter suspect produced a weapon when confronted by a local area resident. The suspect, who did not physically injure the man, fled the area on foot.

Police have now positively identified their suspect as 32-year-old Dale Christopher MacPherson of Peachland, says Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey spokesperson for the Kelowna Regional RCMP.

RCMP have since obtained warrants for several charges related to the December 4th incident, which include robbery, break and enter, assault with a weapon, pointing a firearm and use of a firearm to commit an indictable offence.

Dale MacPherson is believed to be operating a white 2006 Mazda 3 hatchback with a dark grey coloured hood, states Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. If spotted, the public is cautioned not to approach him and urged to contact their local police immediately, as MacPherson has a history of violence and should be considered as potentially armed and dangerous, he adds.

Anyone with any information on the current whereabouts of Dale MacPherson is asked to contact their local police, or the West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880. Or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
