On Tuesday, March 17 Midway RCMP were dispatched to Greenwood after receiving a report that truck tires had been stolen.

According to detachment commander Cpl. Judson Mayes, witnesses reported that three males entered a driveway in full daylight and removed two tires from a parked truck.

Mayes said that a witness called the police, who later spoke to one male who did not deny his involvement. Mayes said the individual was arrested and the matter will be before the courts.


Also on Tuesday, March 17, RCMP responded to a report of a break and enter to a rural property near Beaverdell. A16-foot flat deck trailer and John Deer tractor (model number 5020) were stolen.

Police report the home on the property was entered as well and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information to this break and enter are asked to contact the Midway RCMP at 250- 449-2244 with information.


In the early morning hours of Thursday, March 19, RCMP were called to Rock Creek on a report of a male subject going through an unlocked vehicle looking for personal information. A Westbridge resident also report someone entering an unlocked vehicle and taking personal items, credit cards, set of keys, and flashlight.


On Monday, March 23, police recovered a stolen truck in the Beaverdell area that had been parked down a trail. The vehicle was stolen from Kelowna in November. A large quantity of stolen items was found in the vehicle. Midway RCMP are seeking any assistance from witnesses who can provide any information with the investigation.


Boundary residents are to be reminded to lock their vehicles doors at all times, even if they are running into the store for a minute—this is an opportune situation that thieves look for.
