OLIVER - A local service station was broken into Thursday and police are looking to identify three suspects.

At 4:21 a.m. Thursday morning, an older model green Dodge diesel flat deck pick up drove up to the service station with three men inside. Two of the men made a “brazen” attempt to steal the ATM machine.

The truck driver backed into the store doors, shattering the glass so his accomplices had easy access outside.

Two men made several failed attempts to remove the ATM. The first suspect wore an orange mask, is approximately 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches and 140 to 150 lbs.

The second suspect wore a blue workman jacket, is approximately 5 feet 11 inches to 6 feet, and 160 to 170 lbs.

At 4:31 a.m. police responded to a second call, that turned out to be the green Dodge truck on fire.

Police continue to investigate and are asking the community for help to identify the men.

Anyone with information regarding this file are asked to call the Oliver RCMP Detachment at 250-498-3422 or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
