Theft from Vehicle Suspect Arrested in Enderby
On October 3rd, the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP, entered into an investigation where a vehicle was broken into overnight located in the 700 block of 3rd Ave, Enderby BC. Taken from the vehicle was a wallet containing credit cards and identification. The theft suspects wasted no time and allegedly used the stolen credit cards at local Enderby gas station.
The suspects, a male and female, both known to police, were identified during the theft and fraud investigation. On December 5th, the officers located and arrested the suspect male, however the female still remains outstanding.
Although banking clients know they are often not held liable for fraudulent charges on their account due to theft or un-authorized transactions, it is their responsibility to ensure those cards are protected at all times for security reasons, says Cst. Kelly Brett.
The Vernon North Okanagan RCMP would like to remind vehicle owners to ensure that nothing is left in their vehicles while un-occupied. We often see wallets or purses taken from vehicles where suspects quickly put the stolen debit and credit cards to use, using the tap feature.
A 28 year old male from Enderby BC was arrested and released on conditions and future court date of December 18th, 2018.
