Between Dec. 8 and 12 Williams Lake RCMP responded to around half a dozen calls ranging from attempted break-ins to theft.

On Dec. 8, Lenscutters reported a Nov. 24 theft of nine pairs of Maui Jim sunglasses with bi-focal lenses from a display case in the store. The investigation continues and suspects have not been identified.

The owner of a 2001 Toyota Tacoma reported her car was broken into while it was parked on Pigeon Avenue. Stolen items include a 10-inch Pioneer subwoofer, 250-watt amplifier, an mp3 player, a case of CDs and a 26-oz bottle of whiskey.

An investigation in the neighbourhood revealed no clues. The investigation is ongoing.

On Dec. 9, there was a report of possible human remains on Fox Mountain near Coleman Road. The Forensic Identification Section determined the bones belonged to a deer.

On Dec. 10, a male reported he was approached by two males who stole a saw he was carrying and threatened him with a bat. However, when police located the two males, it was discovered the saw was actually stolen from a pub earlier that day. Police continue to investigate possession of stolen property charges.

On Dec. 11, RCMP arrested a male who was breaking a window on a pick-up truck parked on Moxon Street and lodged him in a cell. A caller reported that three to five youths attempted to steal an uninsured 1998 Toyota van parked on Horsefly Road using keys left in the vehicle and managed to move it 10 feet before being scared off by the caller. The identities of the suspects remain unknown and the investigation continues.

After a witness reported a swearing match between a male and female on Fifth Avenue at Proctor Street RCMP attended and found the pair uncooperative, but after some discussion, the male and female left in separate directions.

On Dec. 12, the RCMP received a complaint regarding an attempted break and enter on Tamarack Road over the weekend where suspect(s) tried to enter a shop at the rear of the property through wooded trails.

No suspects have surfaced and nothing appears to be missing.
