Items left at gas station

Somebody dropped off property at a local gas station and stated a friend would be by to pick up the items.

The friend never showed up.

An employee of the Canada Safeway gas bar, in the 4300 block of 32nd Street, alerted Vernon RCMP on July 6 that on July 4, a man came into the gas bar and dropped off a bunch of property, including a Gio E-bike.

“The unidentified man stated that he was from out of town, and he was on his way to the hospital,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “His unnamed friend would come by to pick up the stuff.”

The friend did not show up. Nobody showed up to claim the property, all of which – including the  E-bike and numerous other items – were turned over to the RCMP as found property.

“The person who was to pick them up can come to the Vernon police office to get them they can quote this file number,” said Molendyk, referring to file number 13414.
