Lake Country RCMP are on the lookout for a toilet thief.

Lake Country RCMP are asking for the public’s help to capture the thief responsible for stealing tiolets from a new home under construction in the 13000 block of Lake Hill Road.

The thievery was reported to police on Thursday at about 9:27 a.m. It’s thought the washroom porcelain was stolen sometime overnight on Wednesday or earlier Thursday morning.

As there were no signs of forced entry to the home, police believe that the toilets was not properly secured or a key was used. Once inside the home the suspect carried out two American Standard toilets, one of which had already been installed.

“The RCMP remind Lake Country residents to be vigilant and report suspicious activity in and around homes under construction to police,” said Const. Jesse O’Donaghey. “RCMP also remind contractors to ensure these properties are properly secured and that spare keys are not left on site unless they are properly secured as well.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Lake Country RCMP at 250-766-2288. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
