Thieves target winter camp

Thieves will go to great lengths and distances to take somebody’s personal belongings.

Lumby RCMP received a report Monday of a theft from a winter campsite far into the Monashee mountains.

Three Kelowna men on snowmobiles ventured to an area some 40 kilometres up Sugar Lake Road and then up a forest service road.

“After setting up camp they went skiing in the area,” said Lumby RCMP Cpl. Henry Proce. “Despite the extremely remote location, someone apparently followed the sled tracks and located the camp.”

The victims’ tent was entered and digital cameras, GPS units, mountaineering jackets, pants and gloves were stolen.

Police request anyone with information on this theft to contact the Lumby Detachment at 250-547-2151, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Tips can also be left at www.nokscrimestoppers.com.
