PENTICTON - Two stolen vehicles were recovered last week as police investigated several vehicle thefts in the South Okanagan.
A Ford F350 pickup was stolen from the parking lot of the Cannery Trade Centre on Monday, May 30, RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says. Plates were stolen from another vehicle in a neighbouring lot around the same time. The truck was recovered later in the week in Kelowna.
On Wednesday, June 1, a vehicle was reported missing from a Winifred Road address in Naramata. The vehicle was later recovered at 901 Debeck Rd. in Penticton with a smashed window.
The property owner reported the truck had been abandoned with engine running and lights on. He called the owner after seeing a phone number lettered on the work truck, which was missing a Honda generator and an emergency kit.
On the same day, a red Polaris side by side 4x4 was stolen from a Juniper Drive residence. A suspicious grey crew cab pickup was seen in the area around the time of the theft.
An electric bike was stolen from the parking lot of Home Hardware on Thursday, June 2. The bike is an Endeavour Impulse S-11, silver in colour.
Overnight Saturday, June 4, a 1994 Geo Metro was stolen from a parking lot near the casino. The owner said he had parked it at 6 p.m. and it was gone an hour and a half later. The vehicle, license number 107 NXM, is still missing.
