Thefts from vehicles an ongoing issue

Sometime during the night of Sept. 30 to Oct. 1, a vehicle was entered in Coldstream and a wallet was stolen.

Thefts from vehicles continues to be problematic for Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP.

But, in at least one case, a suspect was arrested.

Sometime during the night of Sept. 30 to Oct. 1, a vehicle was entered in Coldstream and a wallet was stolen.

The credit card was subsequently used at several businesses in the Vernon area.

“The card was used at least twice, and, through our investigation, we were able to make an arrest,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy.

A 34-year-old man remains in custody in the matter.

He is facing counts of possession of stolen property under $5,000, possession and using a stolen credit card and fraud of $5,000 or over.

Noseworthy said the detachment continues to receive at least a dozen phone calls per week of reports of thefts of items from vehicles.

“We are reminding the public to lock their vehicles at all times, and don’t leave valuables in your vehicle,” she said.
