Vehicle passenger mistaken for a thief
On Nov. 10., around 9 a.m., the 100 Mile RCMP responded to a report of a male breaking into vehicles at the Save-On-Foods parking lot along Highway 97 in 100 Mile House. The complainant reported the male had been seen wandering around the parking lot and then approaching a newer Honda Civic – the male entered the vehicle and was seen rummaging through the centre console.
Police arrived on scene and located a woman loading groceries into her vehicle while her husband was sitting in the car. Her husband admitted that his actions could be seen as suspicious as he did wander the parking lot having a cigarette while waiting for his wife to finish shopping. The 100 Mile House RCMP appreciated the phone call from the concerned citizen and encourage people to call in suspicious activity for police to investigate in our communities.
