LUMBY - Police are appealing to the public for tips after a stolen vehicle turned up torched and shot full of bullet holes last week.

The vehicle, a silver 2000 Audi, was reported stolen from Catt Avenue in Lumby April 6. Two days later, it was found four kilometres up the Noble Canyon Forest Service Road in Coldstream, Cpl. Henry Proce said in a release.

“The vehicle had been burned and was reduced to a mere shell, the car also shot full of holes from what appeared to be a shotgun,” Proce said.

Around ten shotgun shells were found around the vehicle.
