On November 8, around 7:30 a.m. the 100 Mile House RCMP detachment began receiving complaints in regards to theft from vehicles within the 100 Mile House area.
According to RCMP, they have responded to approximately 12 complaints within an eight hour period.
Most of the vehicles entered had been left unlocked by the owners and a number of small items were reported missing – flashlights, small amounts of change, in one case, a wallet with identification. The individual’s debit card was used twice early this morning in town.
In some cases, video and photographs were obtained from home security systems in use on some of the properties.
