Summerland RCMP police report

Car stolen from Summerland A&W parking lot on Monday morning.

Stolen vehicle

RCMP said a vehicle was stolen from the A&W parking lot on Monday morning.

The report came in around 11 a.m. that an employee last saw their 2008 Jeep Cherokee Wrangler when they left it in the parking lot at 6:30 a.m.

Sgt. Stephane Lacroix said there has been a rash of stolen vehicles throughout the Okanagan corridor from Osoyoos to Peachland. He said in particular the thieves seem to be targeting Honda’s.

Lacroix reminded residents to lock their vehicles and not to leave valuables such as money, cell phones or other electronic devices as that only makes it more appealing for thieves to try and get into the vehicle.

Lacroix said if anyone sees the Jeep Cherokee Wrangler that was reported stolen to not take issues into their own hands. He said call 911 and provide the direction of travel of the vehicle and how many occupants are in it.

Bike patrols

Summerland Mounties have been swapping four wheels for two when possible. Bike patrols have been out since the Actionfest weekend in the downtown core and beaches.

“We try to get out there whenever we can because it is a great way for us to connect with the community,” said Lacroix.

Canada Day weekend

RCMP said everyone was behaved on the Canada Day long weekend. There were only a small amount of complaints, mostly related to loud parties.
