Stolen SUV from Saskatchewan found burning along the Okanagan Connector.
Merritt RCMP Cst Tracy Dunsmore says the beige 2013 GMC Terrain was discovered near the highway maintenance yard at the Loon Lake exit on Saturday around 5pm.
She says the smoke was visible from the highway.
"Somebody driving by saw it, then pulled into the maintenance yard and found it on fire. It was actually related to a stolen vehicle file in Kelowna."
It's unclear whether they are related, but Dunsmore does add a 2003 grey Nissan Maxima was stolen in Merritt, from a home on Spring St the same evening.
Anyone with information about either vehicle is asked to contact Merritt RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
Winter not quite over for area mountain passes.
Environment Canada issuing a special weather statement this morning.
Forecaster Gregg Pierce warning travellers there is potential for snow on both the Coquihalla and Okanagan Connector starting tomorrow afternoon, through the evening.
"It's going to rain tonight, then by late afternoon the snow level will drop from around 1,500m, to as low 800m. So, there is the potential for snow, which is not uncommon for this time of year."
Pierce is expecting between 10 and 15cm of snow to fall.
