RCMP are looking for a pair of alleged thieves who pulled the fire alarm at a store hoping to get the advantage of having no one around.
In a recent post from South Okanagan-Similkameen Crime Stoppers, who are calling the woman allegedly involved ‘Ms. False Alarm,’ the incident happened at The Bay in Cherry Lane Shopping Centre on March 29 around 4:30 p.m.
“Your buddy then approached the cosmetic counter where he was surprised that the employee was still there. It appears the two of you were hoping to do a little shopping on your own while everyone evacuated for the alarm. Your actions, in addition to being criminal, caused inconvenience to customers and staff, as well as attendance of the Penticton Fire Department,” the news release states.
It is also alleged the pair took a cab on March 31 and did not pay the fare.
