RCMP Report: Thefts around town

Sometime during the evening of Dec. 13, a break-in occurred to the Kinder Morgan site

Sometime between Dec. 7 and Dec. 10 there was a break-in to the property of Yellowhead Helicopters. A number of tools, including some hand winches, were stolen along with some fuel.

Sometime during the evening of Dec. 13, a break-in occurred to the Kinder Morgan site in Blackpool. There was a heavy snowfall that night and it appears that two people drove into the site with a 4×4 pickup truck. They broke into a tool trailer and stole a drill, CSA tanks and some other tools. They then broke into another storage unit and took computer monitors and attempted to steal an older model pickup truck.

If anyone has information that could assist in these investigations, please don’t hesitate to call the local detachment office or Crime Stoppers.

The RCMP helicopter was available and arrived to help. The male was not local to Clearwater and appeared to have died of natural causes. However, the BC Coroner’s service is still investigating. There did not appear to be any foul play involved.
