“The suspects were reportedly associated with a silver late 90’s model Chevrolet or GMC extended cab pick up truck, possibly with a black roof and a boat rack in the truck’s box.‎”

‎”The suspects associated with the pickup have been described to police as‎ a male driver, who was bald, with tattoos on both sides of his neck‎. He was accompanied by a female passenger described as having long brunette hair,” he said.

As of Jan. 2, the individuals have not been identified and the RCMP is asking for any information the public can provide. Anyone with any information can contact the Lake Country RCMP at 250-766-2288.
