KAMLOOPS - Police are looking for items stolen from a Kamloops garden store, including fruit trees and a fountain top after a theft earlier this week.

The culprit or culprits were able to get into the garden centre's fenced yard and toss the items over the fence at the back of the property which borders Highway 5.

The items stolen include a 12-inch Dewalt Yellow Miter Saw, nine fruit trees and a lion head fountain top. Planters and pottery items were also taken.
