Lumby RCMP are asking for the public’s help with a couple of recent thefts.

On Feb. 12, police received a report of a stolen snowmobile from a residential property in the 2000 block of Highway 6.

A 2012 Skidoo Tundra Extreme 800 (black) was taken right from the owner’s carport sometime between Feb. 8-9.

“At this time police have no suspects and there are no witnesses to this theft,” said Cpl. Henry Proce.

On Feb. 8, officers responded to a commercial break and enter at Tire Craft on Dyffryn Road.

The premises are alarmed and officers responded to multiple hits.

“The rear door had been forced open and money stolen from inside the office,” said Proce.

The property representative arrived shortly before police and saw a man running near the creek.

At this time no arrests have been made and police are requesting anyone with information to please call the Lumby RCMP at 250-547-2151 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
