Merritt and Logan Lake police have forwarded theft charges to Crown Counsel against a man and woman for offences they committed last month.

On Sept. 26, Logan Lake RCMP recovered a truck and quad stolen in Merritt earlier that morning. As police searched for the suspects, who have been identified by police as Amanda Owens and Brent Fox.

They stole a vehicle in Logan Lake and left town. The suspects were arrested the next day when they stole a bait car in Kamloops.

The stolen vehicle from Logan Lake has since been recovered and returned to its owner.

Fox and Owens were released from custody by the court and both currently have warrants out for their arrest.

In a separate case,  earlier this month Logan Lake police arrested a man identified as a Tyler Johnson, charging him with break and enter, theft and flight from police for an incident that occurred this past summer.

On August 27, Mounties attempted to stop Johnson while he was riding an ATV with no insurance, but he fled, broke into a residence, stole a dirt bike and evaded police.

Johnson is still in custody and the investigation continues.
