Police seek help on Fruitvale break-in

Christmas presents were stolen from a Moller Rd in Fruitvale last Wednesday.

A Fruitvale family is trying to piece together Christmas after a break-and-enter on Wednesday.

Sometime between noon and 2:30 p.m. a home on Moller Road in Fruitvale was the scene where the family’s belongings and Christmas presents were stolen while the interior of the home was maliciously damaged, said a police press release.

The family reported that a stranger had knocked on their door the previous day, claiming to be looking for his friend.  It is not certain that the two events are related, but police are asking people to report any similar suspicious activities.

Anyone with information regarding this break-in is encouraged to call the Trail and Greater District RCMP at 250-364-2566.
