Used Tires Stolen

RCMP are investigating an overnight break-in and theft, where thousands of dollar’s worth of used vehicle tires were taken from a local car dealership.

On January 12th, 2018 just before 8:30 am, RCMP received a report of a commercial break and enter, believed to have been committed sometime overnight, to a car dealership located in the 2500 block of Enterprise Way in Kelowna. Police have determined that the unknown suspect or suspects cut a fence to gain entry to the commercial property, where they proceeded to breach a steel shipping container and steal multiple sets of various models of used tires from within.

“Investigators believe that a vehicle was used in the crime, as police discovered that the locks used to secure the vehicle barriers, which lead to the recreational trails of Enterprise Park that run parallel to the business, had been forcibly removed,” says Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.

RCMP have not yet ruled out the possibility that the suspect or suspects prowled businesses in the area searching for an opportunity to commit their crime. “Therefore, we are asking businesses in the 2400 to 2600 blocks of Enterprise Way to review their surveillance camera footage for any suspicious vehicles or persons, seen during the evening hours of January 11th and morning hours of January 12th,” adds Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Cst. Lamont-Paradis of the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300, or contact Crimestoppers.
