50th Birthday Party Spoiled by Alleged Theft


North Okanagan RCMP are investigating after an alleged theft occurred during a 50th birthday party, where gifts were stolen from the side carport of a home located on Kildonan Ave in Enderby, while the party continued on inside. The gifts were stolen on August 4, sometime between the hours of 9pm and 10:30pm. 

It’s a very unfortunate set of circumstances as the gifts were set aside in a carport area to be taken home by the birthday recipient, however an alleged thief thought the items were up for grabs, says RCMP Cst. Kelly Brett. It wasn’t until the victim got home and went to retrieve the gifts from the bags, two days later, when she noticed they were missing

The victim in this incident is disheartened and stated, it’s not about the monetary value, rather they are shocked that someone would enter the property and take gifts during a birthday celebration. Gifts taken included woman’s clothing, a dog leash, a 'Swell' water bottle and a black and purple backpack with hiking gear inside. 

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact the North Okanagan RCMP at 250-546-3028. Or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or leaving a tip online at www.nokscrimestoppers.com.
