But when the culprits noticed they were being watched, they ran to a silver, four-door vehicle and fled the complex.

On Saturday, at 10:15 a.m., RCMP investigated the theft of fishing gear. A property owner in the 500 block of 7th Avenue discovered that sometime overnight someone had entered a locked shed and had removed $1,500 worth of fishing rods and reels. These items included a Corsair Road Reel Combo and a Berkley rod.

Police seek info on old case

RCMP are investigating an incident that occurred in the area of Homathco Drive and Jubilee Parkway in late October, 2010.

At this time, a male and female were involved in a verbal altercation while standing outside a white van parked road side. As a young First Nations couple with a child approached, they were flagged down by the female.

The female got into the couple’s vehicle and was provided a ride from the area, while the male remained roadside with the van. Police are interested in speaking with this young couple. Call 250-286-6221.
