Winery signs stolen

The owner of a Summerland winery wants two signs, stolen last week, returned.

Lawrence Hopper of Bonitas Winery said he is offering a reward for the return of the signs.

A sandwich board sign, which had been displayed at Highway 97 and Matsu Drive, was stolen three weeks ago, then returned and then removed again last Thursday. A second sign, on McDougald Road, was also taken on Thursday.

Hopper is puzzled because the signs were taken during the day, between 2:30 and 3:45 p.m.

The sign of McDougald Road was a large sign, measuring one metre by 1.2 metres. Bolt cutters were used to remove the sign.

Sgt. Mona Kauffeld of the Summerland RCMP detachment said police are continuing to investigate.

“We’re following on leads we have,” she said. “We still can’t find who’s doing it.”
