Columbia Valley RCMP investigating attempted and successful

Columbia Valley RCMP is looking into an attempted and successful fuel theft that investigators believe to be related.

The first was reported on the night of Nov. 21, when a staff member at the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort said a guest vehicle was the target of an attempted gas theft.

RCMP officials said the suspect had drilled a hole in the gas tank and inserted a hose to siphon the fuel.

The theft was interrupted and some gas spilled into the parking lot.
