RCMP FILE: 2014-12642

The residents of a home on the 3000 block of Elliott Road must have been horrified to learn that their house had been entered and robbed while their son was in the basement. A couple left the West Kelowna home mid-morning on March 14th for an hour and a half – enough time for a thief to enter through a rear patio door and steal a number of valuables. The thief left with a bottle of vodka, a Nokia 610 cell phone, 1000 Mexican pesos, $100 US cash and a metallic blue Samsung 500T laptop (converts to a tablet) with serial number HYUY91CD200090.
