While on the way to raid the home in Bridesville, Osoyoos RCMP recovered a tow-behind generator / light tower also worth several thousand dollars which is believed to have been destined for the same property.

Police think all items were stolen over the last few days from Midway, Penticton, and Osoyoos.

As the investigation is ongoing and no charges have yet been laid, names of persons located / detained at the scene are not being released at this time.

Residents in rural areas are reminded to keep vigilant of suspicious activity and report same to their local RCMP.

If anyone has any information related to these investigations, they are encouraged to call the Osoyoos RCMP 250-495-7236 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS
