Pickup trucks were the target of the most recent vehicle thefts in Nakusp. In two separate incidents, an older model pickup truck was stolen from the owners’ residence within village limits. RCMP do not know if the two crimes are related. Both vehicles have been returned to their owners.

“We suspect that these were simple joyrides. Both vehicles were recovered and nothing of value was taken,” said Constable Will Martin in an interview with the Arrow Lakes News.

The first vehicle was stolen in the wee hours of Jan. 11 and the second on Jan. 17. One of the vehicles sustained some damage when it was driven into a snow bank on Crescent Bay Road and the other was simply parked at Anderson’s Automotive, the gas station on Nelson Avenue.


“The RCMP want to remind the public to keep their doors locked and not to leave the keys inside of their vehicles, especially at night,” Martin advised. He also requests that if anyone has information about these thefts, to please contact the local RCMP at 250-265-3677 or, to remain anonymous, to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
