Summerhill theft a real drag

Kelowna RCMP have released surveillance footage of a robbery at Summerhill Pyramid Winery in hopes of finding the perpetrators.

While the theft occurred in the early morning hours of July 13, police were not alerted until staff became aware two days later.

Surveillance video shows the suspects gained access to a storage area and removed a number of tools. They transported their booty in what appeared to be a dark green Chevrolet minivan.

“Their tactics were anything but subtle,” says Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.

“After loading an arc welder, a car jack and other tools into the van, the suspects haphazardly tied a generator to the rear of the vehicle and drove away from the scene. The generator not only created a serious traffic hazard on the roadway, but the sparks it created from being dragged along the asphalt posed a significant risk of triggering a wildfire.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Kelowna RCMP at 250-760-3300 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.crimestoppers.net.
