Travel trailers broken into on Penticton lot

Penticton RCMP responded to several break and enters last week in the city.

PENTICTON - Trailers around the city were targeted last week, with thieves continuing to break into properties around Penticton.

The compound at Okanagan Leisureland was broken into overnight Tuesday, May 17, and seven RVs on the lot were entered, RCMP media spokesperson Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says.

The RVs were both new and customer-owned units. Hammers were used to smash door windows to gain entrance to the RVs, where TVs were taken from some, and others apparently left untouched.

Police have no suspects at this time. If anyone has information which could help police they are asked to call the Penticton RCMP at 250-492-4300.

Also overnight Tuesday, a 2007 Honda dirt bike was taken from a Redlands Road residence.

Overnight Thursday a condo was broken into at 250 Marina Way through an unlocked sliding door on the balcony. An Acer laptop, iPhone, cash and liquor were taken. A trailer containing numerous tools disappeared from its parking place on Braid Street the same night.
