Kamloops Mounties are asking residents to be on the lookout for a red convertible which was reported stolen in Valleyview on Thursday and may have been involved in another theft.

In a news release, Cpl. Crystal Evelyn said just before 10:30 a.m., officers were called to a gas station in the 1700-block of Valleyview Drive for a report of a stolen vehicle.

At about 11:15, Mounties were told a red convertible was sighted in Juniper, where boxes had been stolen from an address on Galore Crescent.

“It’s very early in the investigation, but both reports involve a red convertible, indicating they may be related,” Evelyn said.

“The vehicle stands out and officers are currently conducting patrols. If anyone sees a car they think may be related, please contact police as soon as possible.”

The vehicle is a red Jaguar model XK8 with a black soft top. The B.C. licence plate reads LN 338B.

Anyone who has surveillance or dash camera footage of the vehicle, or who has information about the incident, is asked to call the Kamloops RCMP detachment at 250-828-3000.
