Recent Thefts From Mail Boxes Under Investigation


Thieves in the Shuswap have been targeting mail boxes.

RCMP Staff Sergeant Scott West says that a number of boxes have been hit "In the Sunnybrae Canoe-Point Road area, Tappen, and Salmon Arm as well, so it's not just one geographic area."

At least one set of damaged mail boxes has already been replaced.

West also has word on a rise in vehicle thefts in Salmon Arm, saying "We have noticed an uptick in thefts from vehicles, as well as theft of vehicles. A lot of the vehicles stolen.. people have left the keys in them."

A Tuesday RCMP release also notes that two trucks have been stolen with ATV's in the back.

Anyone with info on any of these cases is asked to contact Salmon Arm RCMP.
