Somebody out there is doing some spring landscaping on the cheap.

Some time overnight between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, numerous items from Art Knapp’s fenced yard on Nunavut Way went missing.

The garden centre reported to Kamloops RCMP that someone took the items by throwing them over the fence that runs along the rear of the property along Highway 5.

Items stolen include:

  • A 12 inch Dewalt Yellow mitre saw
  • Nine fruit trees
  • A lion head fountain top
  • Numerous planters and pottery items

Kamloops RCMP is asking anyone with information on this theft or who may have seen suspicious activity overnight on the 18th– 19th to contact them at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

  1. -Nine fruit trees… I might laugh if it wasn’t going to be so obvious if you plant them all in one yard somewhere. -Even planting three to three different yards is going to look obvious… Maybe they should have just kept their sticky fingers out of it, because I think this is going to be easy to solve, because nobody is going to drive to Alberta with them, so it has to be local; maybe the Shuswap, yet more so, likely, some local itchin’ to plant something this spring…with ‘Spring Fever:’ The garden variety that doesn’t chase women like some pent up leprechaun just out his den from winter…spring fever type of thing. Ha!
