PENTICTON - Penticton RCMP are looking for an armed thief and another who might be a little tipsy following thefts last week.

Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says police are investigating a theft from Manor Park Avenue home sometime overnight on Feb. 13.

A long, custom, three colour bow with a camouflage bow bag containing six arrows along with a Japanese-style sword disappeared from the yard. Thieves apparently accessed the yard through an unlocked gate.

RCMP are also investigating a break-in at a seasonal residence on Fleet Street where a quantity of wine was taken from a personal collection. The theft was reported on Feb. 14, but it is unknown exactly when it occurred.
