Despite very little holiday-related hijinks, police are reporting two major thefts in the area during the holiday season, according to RCMP Sgt. Laurel Mathew.

“The Castlegar RCMP are investigating two substantial thefts which occurred over the Christmas holidays in the Grandview area,” she said. “Sometime overnight on Dec. 26, suspects broke into a cargo trailer that was parked in the 3900 block of 16 Avenue and stole numerous power tools, including a saw table, air compressor, chop saw and several other construction tools. 

“Sometime between Dec. 23 and Jan. 2, a second construction trailer was broken into in the 100 block of  Grandview Drive, and a substantial number of power tools were stolen,” she added. “In both instances the locks were cut from the trailers.  

“The investigation continues. If anyone has any information on these thefts, they are asked to call the Castlegar RCMP. Anyone residing in, or walking around the area are asked to keep an eye out for suspicious activity and report it to police, or if they remember seeing anything out of place during these times, to call and speak to police about it.”

The detachment non-emergency line is 250-365-7721.
