Hundred Mile House

On Saturday, May 16, 2021 at 1:07 PM, 100 Mile House RCMP were advised by the Forest Grove Fire Chief that one of their sheds located in the 4300 block of Canim-Hendrix Lake Road near Forest Grove BC had been entered by unknown suspect(s) and several items of value taken from it. 100 Mile House RCMP attended and investigatedthe incident.

It appears to have occurred sometime between May 15th at 7:45 PM and May 16th to 8:45 AM when
the theft was discovered. Four analogue radios with car antennas used for back country communications and two 110 watt work lamps were stolen. Damage to the shed was minor and there was minimal physical evidence located at the scene. It does not appear that the main hall was entered as no damage to those doors were noted. Neighbourhood enquires made by the officer attending were negative.

100 Mile House RCMP notes that a theft of this nature with equipment stolen from a volunteer group such as Forest Grove Fire Hall is repugnant, especially when this equipment could be used to help a loved one be successfully located or rescued.

Anyone with information on this matter can contact the 100 Mile House RCMP at 250-395-2456 to speak with an officer or call BC Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) if they wish to remain anonymous. The investigation is concluded pending further information coming forward to
RCMP.
