Oct. 14: Police Update

From the Vanderhoof RCMP last week: antique saddles lost and returned, and overnight heavy damage on two properties

Marshall Campbell picked up his temporarily-lost antique prized saddles — worth $4

Priced saddles lost and returned

On Oct. 6 morning, two saddles worth a total of $4,000 to $6,000 were reported stolen from a barn on Birch Road.

One was a MacLellan saddle, dated to the civil war era, and the other was an antique EP Frazer saddle.

The unknown suspects had walked past other items of value to reach the saddles, the reporting individual said.

However, from third-party information and after speaking to a person of interest, the RCMP had located the saddles, which have been delivered back to the detachment for the owner for pickup, said Sgt. Svend Nielsen.

Deliberate damage overnight

Two properties suffered damage on Oct. 6 overnight — incidents considered by the RCMP as linked due to their severity.

Front windows of the BC Liquor Store on Burrard Ave. were heavily dented by a hammer or another tool.

Within New Gold Inc.’s fenced compound on Highway 16, a Ford pickup truck’s windows were smashed while its body was dented as well — damage that was likely caused by rocks tossed over the fence, said Sgt. Svend Nielsen.

No suspects or witnesses has been located so far – the RCMP advised individuals with information to contact the local detachment or report through Crime Stoppers.

Call: 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You remain anonymous. Criminals don’t.

Text: PGTIP and your message to CRIMES (274637). If you see a crime in progress or, call 911 immediately.
