LUMBY - Police are scratching their heads after numerous traffic signs went missing from a highway construction project in the North Okanagan.
RCMP Const. Jocelyn Noseworthy says Controlling Traffic Limited has reported roughly 30 signs stolen from an area on Highway 6 between Lumby and Lavington where paving work is being done.
The signs, which started going missing Sept. 1, are disappearing overnight while crews aren’t there, Noseworthy says. Altogether, the signs are worth over $4,800.
Noseworthy says police have ‘not a clue’ what the motive might be, or how many people might be involved in the sign heists.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Lumby RCMP at 250-547-2151 or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
