Police have no idea why someone or anyone would steal 30 traffic signs.
Controlling Traffic Ltd., which has been working on the paving project on Highway 6 between Lumby and Lavington for the past few months, has reported that in the last month, they have had approximately 30 signs stolen from that area.
“We don’t have a clue why someone would steal that many signs,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy. “We don’t know if it’s one person or maybe a group of individuals.”
The signs are worth more than $4,800, and police believe they are being stolen at night when the crews aren’t there.
Anyone with information regarding this matter is asked to call the Lumby RCMP at 250-547-2151 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
