The gate at a strata complex located on the 3000 block of Thacker Drive in West Kelowna was rendered inoperable by suspects on May 8, 2014. It seems they took an acetylene cutting torch to the bracket that connects the pneumatic motor to the gate. Once the bracket was broken, the gate fell downward, destroying the motor. The gate needed to be propped until it was fixed.
