Purses Stolen From Unlocked Sicamous Houses Overnight


Someone is stealing from Sicamous homes early in the morning.

Two occupied homes with unlocked sliding doors were entered over the past week.

The first incident happened on Forest Park Street on Saturday morning, the second on Pine Street on Monday morning.

Sergeant Murray McNeil is concerned, saying "This isn't something we typically see in Sicamous. It's very troublesome that someone would take the risk of entering a person's home."

A purse was stolen from each home, but no one was hurt.

McNeil says that two youth were busted this past week for thefts from cars "I cannot say that they were linked to the houses where the purses were taken, I can't make that connection."

He says the message for Sicamous is to lock your doors and your car.
