Plywood stolen from Ashton Creek area
Building materials have vanished from a North Okanagan construction site.
Shortly after 9 a.m. Monday, a contractor in the Ashton Creek area reported the theft of materials from a house he was building in the 3000 block of Trinity Valley Road.
“The builder told police that the previous evening, all building materials were accounted for,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk.
When the contractor attended the next morning, an entire load of three-quarter-inch plywood tongue and groove subfloor with a Tolko logo on it had been removed from the site along with some R12 insulation.
The contractor told police the total of the supplies was more than $4,000 in value.
“The thieves who stole the plywood had cut the strapping to the bundle of plywood, and had loaded it onto a trailer sheet by sheet so they were there for some time,” said Molendyk.
The contractor and the RCMP are asking anyone with any information on this to please call the Enderby RCMP detachment at 250-838-6818 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
