DATE: July 14, 2014

RCMP FILE: 2014-37777

The owner of 2 stolen SUP’s (stand up paddleboard) contacted the Kelowna RCMP detachment on July 14th to report the theft. The boards had been left on the dock of the home on the 5400 block of Lakeshore Road on the 13th and were gone the next morning. It appears the suspects approached by boat and pulled them off the dock. The paddles were left behind, most likely because they were out of reach. The boards were 11’ Jimmy Styks Otter paddle boards (a hybrid cruiser series), with glass painted epoxy decks and a wood grain inlay accent.

DATE: July 10, 2014

RCMP FILE: 2014-36736

A man taking care of a home on the 500 block of Hollywood Road North arrived on the afternoon of July 10th and noticed that the front gate was open, personal belongings were strewn in the driveway and the door to the house was open. He noticed that the basement door had been pried open with a crowbar. Inside, the house had been messed up and it appeared the intruder had left in a hurry, empty-handed. Once the homeowner returned it was determined that a 300 caliber Ruger Mark II rifle had been stolen from the home (serial number 79089271).
