Locals deprived of tools, car, and snow mobile by thieves

Early in the morning of Dec. 2, a car was stolen from Hills as well as $800 worth of hand tools.

Early in the morning of Dec. 2, a car was stolen from Hills as well as $800 worth of hand tools. The car was found shortly thereafter, complete with driver and passenger: two young adult males. The driver was arrested for possession of stolen property, but the passenger was fleet of foot and ran off before the RCMP could lay hands on him.

The two men, not local, were travelling through, said Slocan Lake RCMP officer Constable Spiers. The car was an “easy target,” because it was unlocked with its keys in it, he commented. Spiers recommended that people do not leave their keys in their vehicle, and to keep it locked in order to avoid the unpleasant surprise of finding it not there.

The Salmo RCMP are still on the lookout for the passenger, and would like to talk to anyone who has any info.

In other news, the Slocan Lake RCMP are looking for a green and white 2011 Arctic Cat M8 taken from a Slocan property some time between Nov. 24 and Nov. 30. If you’ve seen it or know anything about it, they’d like if you’d let them know.
