PENTICTON - Penticton RCMP are investigating a rash of break and enters as 2016 ended and 2017 began.

Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says sometime overnight on Dec. 29 there was break-in at a home on McCulloch Drive. The residence had been accessed through the garage door.

Missing were two 42-inch LG televisions, a child’s scooter, an Xbox 1 and a safe containing personal identification and household documents.

Tracks in the snow indicated a grocery cart was used to ferry the goods from the backdoor, down the alley. 

On Jan. 1 at around 4 a.m. there was a break and enter was reported at a Victoria Drive residence. A Dell laptop, an HP touchscreen laptop, an iPad 3, a Canon Rebel XT1 DSLR camera with lens, Sony and Kodak cameras, liquor, spare keys and a wallet with identification was taken.

A Mastercard credit card in the wallet was used shortly after at a convenience store where video surveillance is being reviewed by police.

Also on Jan. 1, the front window at a home on Sutherland Road was smashed. The homeowners, who reside out of town, reported furniture, a snowblower, wine and clothing missing.
