Osoyoos RCMP had a busy long weekend, dealing with everything from vehicle mischief to bike and battery thefts.
On Aug. 30, police received a report that thieves had climbed into a locked/fenced compound at Lordco and stolen several cases of oil and 40 to 50 used batteries. This is the third theft of vehicle batteries over the last several months,
The same date, police were called to the Oasis RV Resort , after people there apprehended a man stealing a radar detector from a vehicle at the location.
Police took custody of a 20-year-old man and arrested him for theft.
On Aug. 30, two bikes were stolen from an underground storage area in the 2400 block of Lakeshore Drive. On Sept. 2, a boy's BMX bicycle was stolen from the 6700 block of Ponderosa Drive.
Police believe, it is the same thief or thieves responsible for the large number of bicycles being stolen in the Osoyoos area.
On the morning of Sept.1, an off duty police officer noted a suspicious vehicle behind the Best Western. Police investigated and found the vehicle to have a stolen license plate attached.
The 25-year-old owner of the car is under investigation for possession of stolen property.
