Several vehicles parked at Lake Country homes were entered with items reported stolen during the early morning hours of October 4th. A car on the 2200 block of Lacresta Road had a Samsung Galaxy phone taken (s/n 359653063230331).  A van at a neighbouring home was entered and a red leather wallet and a keychain full of charms were stolen from inside.  The wallet was found abandoned nearby, minus the credit and debit cards, which were used soon after in Vernon.   A car parked in a driveway on the 11,000 block of Daniel Drive, just a couple of blocks away, was also entered and the thief took a Garmin Nuvi 2597 GPS navigation unit (s/n 3VT406005).
