Wishing the Iceman would goeth

A dozen years ago, there was the Bushman of the Shuswap.

Today, police in Logan Lake might have an Iceman of Lac Le Jeune on their hands — and, given what has been stolen, he might be in disguise.

In a four-day span last week, Mounties received reports of four break-ins at cabins in the area — three in Lac Le Jeune and one at Walloper Lake.

Missing are a bear-skin rug, a large costume chest and an outboard motor, among other items.

Logan Lake RCMP Cpl. Kathleen Thein said there’s no pattern to the burglaries.

“Unfortunately, every year at this time, this type of thing will happen,” she said, noting the cabins are used seasonally and sit empty most of the winter.

“Fortunately, nothing of high value was stolen.”

Thein said the burglaries are believed to have taken place between Nov. 4 and Nov. 9.

Since then, Mounties in the area have increased patrols in hopes of catching the thief — or thieves.

“We’re not sure if it was just a one-hit wonder, somebody passing through, or if it’s somebody in the area,” Thein said.

“We do regular patrols and we have a very good relationship with the community groups in the area.”

Thein said police are working closely with neighbourhood watch groups and residents have been told to keep an eye out for anything suspicious.

Anyone with information can call Logan Lake RCMP at 250-523-6222 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
