News from the Summerland RCMP detachment over the past week.

Vehicle strikes wall

On Sept. 17 at 12:50 p.m., police were called to a single vehicle accident at the Tim Hortons parking lot off Prairie Valley Road.

An elderly Summerland motorist stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake, crashing into a retaining wall.

The vehicle received significant damage as a result and had to be towed.

The driver and passenger were uninjured.

Frauds continue

Summerlanders continued to receive calls from scammers posing as Canada Revenue Agency officials.

Over the past week, Summerland RCMP received 40 calls from residents who had received the calls.

The callers claim the target owes tax money. They then ask for bank information.

Police urge those who are contacted not to provide the information over the telephone.

Many of the calls originate outside of Canada.

Vehicles entered

Police were called following thefts from vehicles throughout the community last week.

In all instances, the vehicles had been left unlocked and in some cases, the keys had been left inside the unlocked vehicles.

Police urge residents to lock their vehicles and to leave money and valuables out of sight.
