Houston RCMP is investigating two thefts in Houston, one from a liquor store and the other from an unlocked truck.

A woman’s purse was stolen from an unlocked truck in the 3000 block of Nadina Way on Oct. 26 at 6:20 p.m., and RCMP have no suspects for the theft, said Sergeant Rose of the Houston RCMP.

That same day around 10:30 p.m., a male wearing a black jacket and black pants was called in for shoplifting a 26 oz. bottle of Crown Royal from the Idelwild liquor store, Sgt. Rose said.

It’s certainly alarming because shoplifting and theft are unusual in this area, said Sgt. Rose.

Anyone with clues or information about either case is asked to call the Houston RCMP at 250-845-2204 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Lots of vehicle accidents have happened recently as well, with seven accidents between Oct. 27 and Oct. 30, said Sgt. Rose.

None of the accidents resulted in serious injuries, but Sgt. Rose reminds people to be wary of deteriorating road conditions and slow down.

“Regardless of the amount of snow or ice on the road, if vehicles are driving slow enough, they are generally not going to be involved in a crash,” he said.
