The Castlegar RCMP detachment is investigating two substantial thefts which occurred over the Christmas holidays in the Grandview area.

Sometime over night on Dec 26, suspects broke into a cargo trailer that was parked in the 3900 block of 16th ave and stole numerous power tools, including a saw table, air compressor, chop saw and several other construction tools.

Sometime between Dec 23 and Jan 2, a second construction trailer was broken into in the 100 block of  Grandview Drive, and a substantial number of power tools were stolen.

In both instances the locks were cut from the trailers.

The investigation continues. If anyone has any information on these thefts, they are asked to call the Castlegar RCMP.   Anyone residing in, or walking around the area are asked to keep an eye out for suspicious activity and report it to police, or if they remember seeing anything out of place during these times, to call and speak to police about it.
