Williams Lake RCMP responded to approximately 65 complaints for services during the weekend, including perhaps the Grinch trying to steal Christmas.

On Nov. 23 at 11:21 a.m. a resident on 12th Avenue North reported overnight Christmas decorations were stolen from outside their residence.

Eight three-foot light up candy canes and two light-up reindeer were taken, valued at approximately $100. No suspects.

On Nov. 24 at 4:11 a.m. RCMP responded to a report that someone heard what sounded like a vehicle window being smashed in the parking lot behind a residence on 2nd Avenue. Police attended and located a Sunfire vehicle with all the windows broken. Nothing appeared to be stolen, the ignition was not damaged and the vehicle’s doors were still locked (not entered). Police suspect this to be a matter of vandalism and not targeted to steal.

Later that day, RCMP received a report at  8:43 a.m. of a theft from a vehicle parked at a local night club parking lot overnight. Theft from the vehicle occurred between the hours of 2 a.m. and 8:40 a.m. when the owner returned and observed the front driver’s side window smashed. Stolen from the vehicle was a Macbook Pro which was in a copper coloured carrying bag. Estimated value of $1,000. A box containing ski gear was rummaged through. Skis and golf clubs were left untouched. Police observed a second vehicle also had its front driver’s side window smashed. Nothing appeared to have been stolen.  No suspects.
