RCMP in Lumby are looking for the individuals responsible for stealing the shop car from Charles Bloom Secondary School.

The vehicle, a 1987 Dodge Shadow, four-door, white in colour, is used by the automotive students for learning purposes.

“The vehicle is not registered and has no licence plates,” said Corp. Henry Proce, with the Lymby detachment.

“It also has a blown head gasket so is not running properly.”

Proce said there had been two sightings of the car in the Cherryville area, one near Maria’s Cafe, the other near the library, but police have not been able to locate the car.

If you have information on the vehicle’s whereabouts, call the detachment or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Police are also asking the public’s help in solving an arson case.

On April 8, a female Lumby resident ran out of gas some 20-kilometres down Trinity Valley Road, at about 6:30 p.m.

She walked back toward town to get cell phone service.

By the time she called the tow truck, and it arrived on scene, her vehicle had been burned to a shell and was still smoking.

“We have no leads, and are requesting the community’s assistance in solving this apparent arson,” said Proce.
