B&E/Thefts – Charges laid
The Osoyoos RCMP have arrested 32 year old Michael Scott Miller and 33 year old Angela Michelle Gauthier both of no fixed address for multiple break and enters and thefts committed in both Osoyoos and Oliver. Miller and Gauthier went on a crime spree in which they entered the properties of businesses and residential units and stole valuables including tools, antiques and liquor. These thefts were brazenly committed during day light hours which ultimately led to the two being identified by witnesses and later located by police while they were still in possession of many of the stolen items. Miller and Gauthier appeared in Penticton Provincial court on April 28 where they were released on conditions while awaiting trial. Both have a condition to remain out of Osoyoos and Oliver.
