On Friday morning, a children’s slide was taken from a home on Lakeshore Drive near Highway 97 in Summerland.

The incident occurred around 10:30 a.m.

Cst. Jacques Lefebvre of the Summerland RCMP detachment said  the slide had been dismantled and was to be sent out for refurbishing. It had been set out at the front of the property.

Police say a neighbour saw someone loading the slide onto a truck and then driving away.

The slide has been in the family for more than 60 years and has sentimental value.

Lefebvre said the person who took the slide may have believed it had been set out to be discarded. He asks the person who took it to return it to the home.
