LUMBY - Police are reaching out for public assistance in solving two thefts earlier this month in Lumby.

The first was a break and enter Feb. 8 at Tire Craft on Dyffryn Road. The alarm was set off, and when police arrived, they found the rear door had been forced open and money stolen from inside the office, Cpl. Henry Proce says. The property representative arrived before police and saw a man running near the creek. No arrests have been made and police are asking anyone with information to contact the Lumby RCMP detachment or Crimestoppers.

The second incident was Feb. 12 when a resident reported a stolen snowmobile. The snowmobile had been taken from the carport of a residential property in the 2000 block of Highway 6 sometime between Feb. 8-9.

“At this time police have no suspects and there are no witnesses to this theft.  As always, any assistance from the public would be very helpful,” Proce says.

Anyone with information can contact the Lumby detachment at 250-547-2151 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
