Peachland residents are being warned their vehicles may have been recently tampered with.
West Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of mischief to vehicles in the 6200 block of Whinton Crescent, in Peachland about 10 a.m. May 14.
When officers arrived they discovered that the the lug nuts to vehicles in the area had either been loosened or stolen completely. In one case, gas had been syphoned from the tank also.
According to Cpl. Meghan Foster it did not occur to the vehicle owner that there was something wrong until he was driving downhill and the car started to shake.
“While there have been only two reports of this and no accidents attributed, we would like to warn people who reside in, or have visited the area to double check the safety of their vehicles.”
