RCMP Looking to ID Parcel Thief


Vernon North Okanagan RCMP are looking to the public to help identify a suspect in a parcel theft that happened over the holiday season. 

On December 26th, just after 4:00 pm, RCMP say they received a report in regards to a theft of a parcel that took place on Tamarack Drive in Vernon.

Surveillance video shows an elderly woman who approaches the front door, rings the doorbell and when there is no answer, she helps herself to a small parcel and casually walks away. 

“The RCMP are looking to the public in hopes that someone recognizes this suspect so police can speak with her,” says RCMP Cst. Kelly Brett. “The suspect is not known to the victim and their family and had no reason for being at that particular residence that day”.
The suspect is described as an elderly Caucasian female, with short grey hair, wearing glasses and a grey jacket. 

Anyone with any information about this theft is asked to contact the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP at 250-545-7171. Or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or leaving a tip online at www.nokscrimestoppers.com. You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers. If you provide information that leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward.
