Cash stolen in fruit stand break in

The Keremeos RCMP are asking residents to be diligent in reporting suspicious activity after several fruit stands have been broken into.

The Keremeos RCMP are asking residents to be diligent in reporting suspicious activity after several fruit stands have been broken into this summer.

The most recent break and enter occurred between September 9 and September 10 at the Sanderson Farms Market on Highway 3.

Thieves entered the business from a side window and stole cash and other undisclosed items from the business.

Evidence left at the scene suggests at least one male suspect was involved in the theft, a press release issued by Cpl. Kat Thain stated.

“We suggest residents continue to keep a watchful eye on area businesses as well a their neighbours for any suspicious activity and to call police,” she said during a phone interview with the Keremeos Review Tuesday.

Thain clarified that if residents witness someone clearly breaking into a business by way of breaking through windows and doors they should call 911.

If residents think they are witnessing suspicious activity like seeing people around a business at odd times they should call the detachment line at 250-499-5511. If someone is not at the detachment the call will be routed to a call centre in Kelowna and police will be dispatched.

The recent break and enter is the third at local fruit stands in the past two months.

It is unknown at this time if the thefts are related.

Residents can also contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS  with information about this or any other crime.
