RCMP received a call during the day on May 29 after a person found a one-year-old child wandering the streets.

Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth said a person found the baby on Queen Street and Nelson Avenue walking around in just its diaper.

“Police knocked on doors, eventually finding a parent. The child was being watched by their 11-year-old sister and they were completely unaware that the child was not in the residence,” said Wrigglesworth.

The child was outside of its home for approximately one hour before RCMP found the guardians. Wrigglesworth said the Ministry of Children and Youth Services was called to deal with the situation.

Break in at Okanagan Falls

Two teenage males found themselves in front of the justice of the peace after breaking in to a residence located in the Peach Cliff Estates Mobile Home Park.

Neighbours of the residence called RCMP at 2:52 a.m. on May 29 after seeing flashlights moving around in the trailer. The residents were supposed to be away.

RCMP arrived to find the two males inside and a backpack full of stolen items including a rifle, liquor, food, money, a wallet and keys. Wrigglesworth said the two youths were previously known to police. They were given a curfew and are not to possess break and enter tools.
