PENTICTON - Penticton RCMP are investigating the theft of a couple trailers, some tires and the coins from aparment building washing machines.

RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Ted Manchulenko says a small flat deck trailer was stolen from the driveway of a Churchill Avenue home in the early morning hours of March 26. The tandem axle trailer is custom built, with bright LED lights on the rear.

A light trailer was also taken from Westminster Rentals on Government Street sometime early March 18.

On Friday, March 24, someone climbed the fence at Huber Chevrolet on Westminster Avenue and took four tires, which barely fit in the suspect’s car. Police have a vehicle of interest and are investigating the incident.

Manchulenko also reports continuing laundry room washing machine coin theft in apartment complexes. He says two more laundry rooms were hit last week on Victoria and Abbott Streets. The method of operation was similar in both cases, with washing machine coin receptacles pried open and more damage resulting to the equipment than what was taken in the thefts.

Penticton RCMP are looking for a trailer similar to the one shown in this submitted photo. The stolen trailer is red and was taken from Westminster Rentals on March 18, 2017.
