Police are looking for an older-model red and silver pickup truck suspected of being involved in a theft at Sun Peaks.

Kamloops Rural RCMP said the theft was reported on Monday, Sept. 30, at a unit at 5040 Valley Dr., when a contractor arrived in the morning to discover three television sets — two 60-inchers and one 40-incher still in their shipping boxes — left in the house for installation were gone.

There were no signs of forced entry and access is gained through a pass code.

Police were told the truck had been at the residence at about 7:10 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 29, and witnesses saw a large cardboard box in the bed of the truck.

Two males wearing black hoodies were putting something into the truck box at the time.

• Meanwhile, Kamloops RCMP are looking for the owners of property recovered.

The items include a telescope, a trophy and printed materials, among other unique historical artifacts.

The items do not match any police records of lost or stolen items.

Anyone with information is asked to call the RCMP’s main detachment at 250-828-3000.
