The Merritt RCMP is seeking the public's assistance to locate a stolen speed sign.

In the early morning hours of December 2, 2023, a speed sign was stolen from the 2300 block of Coldwater Avenue. Everything was stolen, including the lock and chain that were used to secure it. The thief/thieves would have had to use bolt cutters or a grinder, to cut the lock or chain.

Yellow speed sign with a solar panel on top, sitting on the sidewalk in front of the Merritt Community Police Office. 

"The Merritt Community police office uses portable speed signs in strategic locations throughout the City of Merritt to encourage the public to slow down and to track speed statistics." Says Cst. Blake Chursinoff. "We are hoping to have the sign returned, so we can continue to use it to encourage drivers to slow down around schools, parks and high traffic pedestrian areas."

If anyone has information or knows the whereabouts of the speed sign, please contact the Merritt RCMP at 250-378-4262.
