Thefts generate beach warning

The weather is heating up and so are thefts from the beach parking lots.

RCMP are warning motorists to put their valuables in their trunks before they head to the sand and water after they received numerous complaints over the weekend about thefts from vehicles.

“It’s that time of year again when thieves target places like Cosens Bay or Kal Lake Provincial Park,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “We advise to put valuables away and out of sight before heading to the beach. We do have individuals who target beach parking lots.”

Police also warn to keep vehicles locked at the parking lots as there were also reports of theft of vehicles over the weekend.
