HAVE POLICE RECOVERED YOUR STUFF?

KAMLOOPS — Police are looking for three people wearing masks who broke into several storage units in Sun Rivers early this morning.

Police say the thieves got into 16 storage lockers in the storage rooms for three apartments on Talasa Way. They used bolt cutters to open the lockers but Staff Sgt. Doug Aird says "there were no points of forced entry to any of the garages."

Video surveillance showed the men, wearing hoodies and wearing gloves, hauling goods into an exit stairwell but some of it was left behind in a nearby yard. Police gave no description for a getaway vehicle but are asking residents in the area of 1000, 1030 and 1040 Talasa Way to report any suspicious vehicles or other behaviour around 12:38 a.m. Those residents may also claim some of the recovered goods which include golf clubs, yellow Elan skis, ski poles, red and black Burton snowboard, a brown Rocky Mountain Flatline mountain bike and a baseball bat.

If you can describe the items or can assist police, call Tk’emlups Rural Detachment at 250-314-1800.
