Sicamous RCMP are asking the public for an information that may lead to the arrest of several unknown individuals responsible for a three-day crime spree.
Sgt. Carl Vinet says the “rampage” began on Thursday, Sept. 22, with the attempted theft of an ATM machine from the Shell gas station.
The service station’s front window was smashed in and a stolen pickup truck was used to pull the ATM out. Despite their effort, says Vinet, the culprits were unable to remove the machine.
The pickup truck was later recovered near the Two Mile landfill; however, it had been set on fire and was badly burned.
Vinet says the rampage continued with an attempt to steal a truck on Tecumseh Road, and separate attempts to steal a truck and a car on Montcalm Crescent.
A break and enter at the Two Mile landfill was later reported after staff there discovered the gate had been cut and the shack window broken. Nothing, however, appeared to have been taken.
The crime spree is believed to have concluded on Sept. 25 with the theft of a white 2006 Ford F350, licence plate BE6350, from the Blue Water Houseboats parking lot.
Vinet says these incidents remain under investigation, and he encourages anyone with information that may be of help to contact the detachment at 250-836-2878, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. All calls to Crime Stoppers are anonymous and rewards are offered for tips that lead to arrests.
