Lake Country RCMP received a report of property stolen from a garage on the 13,000 block of East Ridge Drive on the morning of January 14th.  The homeowner went out to the garage to discover the overhead door open and the doors on her vehicle ajar.  Items taken from the vehicle include some pink/gold coloured Oakley sunglasses in a white case and a small tan coloured ladies clutch style purse that contained identification, credit cards and health car cards.   The man door of the garage may have been accidentally left open.

Lake Country RCMP were called on January 15th when residents discovered damage to a couple of locks on doors at a condo building located on the 10,000 block of Bottom Wood Lake Road.  Video surveillance revealed two males and one female arriving in a dark coloured Mazda 3 hatchback and entering the condo during the wee hours of January 13th.   A large male with a slight beard wearing a ball cap and a grey hoodie pulled up over his face jimmied the front door and let the other darker complexioned male who was wearing a touque pulled down to hide his face into the building.  They then forced the lock to the door of the parkade in the basement allowing the female to drive through the garage door.  They rummaged around the parkade for a while before leaving.  It does not appear that anything was actually stolen.
