Break-in caught on camera

A pair of thieves on BMX bikes managed to break into an apartment complex on Mills Road early Thursday morning.

According to police thieves broke into the building at 345 Mills Road shortly before 1:30 a.m.

They gained entry into the underground parking garage, smashed windows in at least five vehicles and made off with some contents.

Police are still trying to determine what was taken.

According to Scott, one of the victims, his car alarm scared the perpetrators away.

"One (thief) has a distinctive jacket. Both bikes have distinctive designs on the handlebars, and one bike has a basket," he says.

He says thieves were able to take a backpack from the back seat of his car.

The backpack contained:

  • Lenovo Laptop
  • External hard drive
  • Two Xbox controllers
  • Small notebook with sentimental value

A reward is being offered for its return.

If you have information concerning the break-in contact Kelowna RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
