Lumby RCMP are alerting the public they’ve had enough with repeated vandalism in the village.

The latest incident happened around May 10, when a picnic table at the Lumby Lions Campground was thrown into Bessette Creek. The table was swept away due to the high water, and not recovered.

“Vandalism in the park and along the Salmon River Trail is a recurring problem during the warmer months and police will show little tolerance for this kind of mischief,” said Lumby RCMP Cpl. Henry Proce.

Anybody with any information on the picnic table being thrown into the creek is asked to call the Lumby detachment at 250-547-2151, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Lumby RCMP would like some information, as well, on a stolen red Chevrolet Tahoe, taken from the roadside in Cherryville.

Proce said the vehicle overheated the previous night and was parked at the Hydro rest stop on Highway 6.

“When the owner returned the following morning, the vehicle was gone,” said Proce.

The licence number of the Tahoe is 303 PBF.

The same day, a stolen vehicle from Kelowna was left in Lumby and Proce thinks the two cases may be related.

Anybody with any information is asked to call the detachment or Crime Stoppers.
