PENTICTON - A Penticton modular home manufacturer has drawn the unwelcome attention of thieves.

Moduline Industries at 1175 Railway St. was broken into on Sept. 20.

Police spokesperson Rick Dellebuur said police responded to a call at 7 a.m. to find the business had been entered sometime during the night.

Numerous cordless air tools were taken in addition to a $400 vending machine float.

Thieves accessed the property by cutting the fence between the Penticton Golf Course and Moduline, then cutting a second fence that allowed access to an open mezzanine.

No arrests have been made.
