Thefts and break-ins keep RCMP busy

Construction site broken into, car window smashed and a stolen car spotted in Penticton.

Construction site theft

On Sept. 23 a construction site in Penticton was broken into.

Suspects used a torch to cut three locks including one on a C-Can container where tools and fixtures, including faucets, were stolen. A number of the tools are engraved with the initials “AMS.”

Break-in vehicle

On Sept. 23 vehicle was broken into at 150 Skaha Pl.

The side window was smashed and a phone charger was stolen.

The suspect was described as 150-175 pounds, slim, 5’’11 to six feet tall, wearing a tan, nylon puffy coat with a hood and blue board shorts. The suspect was also wearing mechanic gloves with a white lining.

Stolen car spotted

A sliver Pontiac Sunfire was spotted driving erratically on Sept. 26 on the Channel Parkway. Police followed the vehicle on Green Mountain Road.

After activating their emergency lights, the vehicle took off at a high rate of speed cutting into oncoming lanes. Police, considering the driver’s state of mind and behaviour, did not pursue the vehicle.

The owner of the vehicle was contacted at work and thought her vehicle was at home.
