CHERRYVILLE - Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP are appealing for information after $6,000 worth of diesel and oil were stolen from a Cherryville business.

RCMP say in a press release that a large quality of diesel fuel and oil were stolen from a business at 748 East Highway 6 in Cherryville sometime between the evening of Aug. 19 and the morning Aug. 20.

Police say roughly 6,680 litres of diesel fuel were stolen from an outdoor tank, along with numerous 20-litre buckets of motor oil from a storage shed.

It would appear that at one or two vehicles were used in the theft and one may have been pulling a trailer to enable it to remove the diesel from the tank, RCMP say.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Lumby RCMP at 250-547-2151 or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
