At 5:43 p.m. on July 24, 100 Mile House RCMP were called to Save-On-Foods to the report of a shoplifter who had refused to co-operate.
The store loss prevention officer (LPO) noted a woman in her twenties with long dark hair and glasses, walking with crutches, stole a number of grocery items from the store by stashing them in her hand bag.
When confronted outside of the store, the woman became upset with the LPO and proceeded to strike him with one of her crutches when he approached her.
Subsequently, people in a pickup truck provided a ride to the woman who escaped the scene prior to police arrival. She has not yet been located and is arrestable for assaulting the LPO and for theft from Save-On-Foods.
On July 28, police were called to a Canim Lake residence to deal with a complaint that phone lines were not working because they had been purposely cut.
There are no suspects in this matter and the motive for cutting the lines is unknown.
