PENTICTON - A Penticton resident had a TV stolen on moving day yesterday.

Penticton RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says the person was in the midst of moving from their South Main Street residence yesterday, Oct. 2, when a neighbour noticed a woman walk out of the home with a 50-inch television sometime between 10:30 a.m. and noon.

The neighbour assumed it was someone assisting with the move, but it turns out that wasn’t the case, he says.

Wrigglesworth says along with the Sharp television, police suspect the thief also got away with an Asus touchscreen laptop.

The suspect is around 50 years old with dark, shoulder length hair. She was driving a grey Mustang.

Anyone with information about the theft are asked to call Penticton RCMP at 250-492-4300.
