About six vehicles near the corner of Alexander Road and Highway 6 near Nakusp had money and small objects taken out of them the night of Saturday March 10.

Glove boxes and consoles were rummaged through, and whatever small objects of value or amounts of money were found by the thieves were taken.

“They were looking for money; they took a package of gum out of one vehicle,” said Constable Tim MacDonald.

But the theft of whatever small change or items of some kind of value weren’t the worst of it.

At least two vehicles were vandalized, their seats slashed, possibly because the thieves were upset they didn’t find anything, MacDonald said.

There may be more reports to come, the Constable said, who has heard some rumblings around town about vehicles in Nakusp also being burgled.

“It’s not an ongoing problem, but it does happen periodically,” MacDonald told the Arrow Lakes News. The officer recommends that people lock their cars and trucks up at night. Constable McDonald said that people don’t think they need to in a small town, but it’s a good idea to keep your vehicle secure even in Nakusp.

The Nakusp RCMP are asking for the community’s help in finding the persons responsible for the theft and damage to the vehicles; if you have any information, please call the Nakusp RCMP at 250-265-3677.
