Williams Lake RCMP responded to several vehicle break-ins and an account of property vandalism between Nov. 28 and Nov. 29.

Nov. 28

At 8:16 p.m. police responded to a report that a native male was breaking a fence on Cameron St. Police attended and patrols of the area were unsuccessful in locating the perpetrator. Damage to the fence consisted of broken fence boards.

At 9:11 p.m. police were called to Second Avenue to a report that a truck window was smashed and a male had fled after being confronted by the owner of the vehicle.  The perpetrator was described as a male wearing jeans, having a hoodie over his head.  The hoodie was striped, black and blue colours.

At 9:46 p.m. the RCMP responded to a report of a native male dressed in dark clothing who threw rocks breaking two panes of glass in the window of a residence on First Avenue North. Police patrols of the area were unsuccessful in locating the perpetrator.

At 11:37 p.m. police responded to a report that a shed located at a residence on 1st Avenue was being broken into after the owner of the residence reported hearing a loud noise outside.  The shed door was found opened; however, no one was around.  The owner of the shed didn’t think anything was taken at the time of reporting.

Nov. 29

At 12:09 a.m. the RCMP received a complaint from the owner of a vehicle on Larch Street stating that the window of their 2010 Dodge 1500 pickup had been broken out and the alarm was sounding. Police responded and patrols of the area for the perpetrator were unsuccessful.  Nothing was taken from the vehicle. No description for the perpetrator could be determined.

At 12:30 a.m.  while making patrols, police noticed a blue Toyota Tundra truck parked on Longhorn Drive had the passenger window smashed. Upon checking the vehicle further police heard footsteps of someone running away.  A possible suspect was described as a male with a dark hoody who had jumped a fence and ran away.  Perpetrator was not located.

At 4:36 a.m. While making patrols in the Longhorn Drive area police members noticed a Chevrolet truck with the driver’s side window smashed. Police located and spoke with the owner who was unaware that his vehicle had been broken into as the alarm was not activated.  An examination of the vehicle revealed that the contents of the inside of the vehicle had been strewn about.  No one was identified as a possible suspect.

At 6:11 a.m. RCMP responded to a call that a Dodge truck was broken into on Dairy Rd. The back window was forced open. There was damage to the window possibly caused by a screwdriver, and the ignition was tampered with and laying on the floor mats of the truck. The owner of the vehicle was unsure if anything that was taken. Matter is still under investigation.
