Revelstoke RCMP issue warning after more unlocked vehicles entered

Revelstoke RCMP investigating thefts from vehicle and theft of a vehicle in Columbia Park on Christmas Eve.

It was the night before Christmas, and all through Columbia Park thieves were stirring.

On Thursday, Dec. 24, RCMP were informed that several vehicles had been entered and items stolen on the 1900 block of Laforme Boulevard.

In one case, thieves made off with a vehicle in which the owner left the keys in the ignition.

Based on the footprints left in the snow, almost every single vehicle on the street was approached, but only those that were left unlocked were entered.

One vehicle, a navy blue 2008 Toyota Tacoma with a matching canopy, was stolen.

The incidents came a few days after a number of vehicles were entered in Southside.

RCMP are reminding people to lock their vehicles, and leave valuables out of sight and secured.

Police ask anyone with information about these incidents to call them at 250-837-5255 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Damage to washrooms

On Monday, Dec. 21, RCMP were advised of a drunk man in the public washrooms in Grizzly Plaza. He had been previously reported sleeping in the foyer of several local businesses.

When police arrived at the washroom, they found the man had covered the walls in shaving cream, lodged cans in the toiled, shattered the sink and caused other damage. The cost of the damage was estimated at about $2,000.

The homeless man was arrested and released on conditions, including not entering the core of Revelstoke. He will be charged with two counts of mischief and one count of uttering threats made following his arrest. He also damaged the inside of a police car.

The washrooms are closed while City of Revelstoke staff undertake repairs.
