Vehicle broken into by Floe Lake

Hikers gone for six hours, return to find car had been broken into and roof box tampered with

On Tuesday, October 10th at about 6 p.m., RCMP were informed that a vehicle which had been parked in the Kootenay National Park was broken into earlier in the day. The vehicle owner relayed that she and her husband had been hiking at the Floe Lake Trail for approximately six hours; when they returned to their vehicle they discovered signs that the vehicle had been tampered with. The rear passenger window had been broken, the cargo carrier on the roof had been tampered with and the trunk door had been tampered with rendering it inoperable. Fortunately there were no valuables in the vehicle and as a result nothing was taken from it. A good reminder that if you are going to be leaving your vehicle in a relatively remote place for any length of time, ensure there are no valuables in it.
