Thieves were quick to target a Toyota Prius stopped at a viewpoint on Crystal Waters Road in Lake Country on July 25th. Thieves pried around the driver’s side window in order to access the door lock. They stole a silver Mac Book Pro (s/n CO2GK34WDV13) which was stored in a black soft computer bag that also contained a Wi-Fi device for logging on to the internet.

Two incidents of mischief occurred in the early morning hours of July 29th that may be related. Lake Country RCMP were called to the mall on Main Street at 4:55 AM on July 29th. The owner of a motorcycle discovered that it had been knocked over, causing damage. While investigating that mischief file, police discovered that the IGA’s back fenced compound had been accessed and vandalized, with approximately $1000 in damage. Video shows an intoxicated-looking large Caucasian male with dark hair, no shirt and dark pants circling the bike before kicking it over. Two youths were also in the area at the time that could be responsible for the compound incident.
