Whistler RCMP investigating after stolen vehicle found abandoned

Also in police briefs: E-bike stolen from Upper Village; Whistler Olympic Plaza vandalized with graffiti

Police are investigating after discovering a stolen vehicle left abandoned in a Whistler parking lot. 

According to the Whistler RCMP, officials responded to a call last Wednesday, Aug. 3 reporting a vehicle that had been parked across two spots for two consecutive days. It appeared to have been "rummaged through," Sea to Sky RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Angela Kermer explained in a news release.

Police quickly determined that the vehicle’s licence plates had previously been reported stolen from Squamish, while the vehicle itself was reported stolen out of Vancouver.

The RCMP's Forensic Identification Unit conducted a scan on the vehicle and the file remains open. 

The call was one of 126 total files opened by Whistler RCMP over the week of Aug. 2 to 8, including one collision investigation.

The same day, Aug. 3, Whistler RCMP were also called to respond to reports of a stolen e-bike. The RadRunner E-Bike was missing from a storage area in the 4000 block of Spearhead Drive, near the Upper Village, where the bike's owner said it had been locked and secured. 

There was no surveillance at the site nor any witnesses who have come forward, according to Whistler RCMP. 

RCMP respond to reports of mischief at Whistler Olympic Plaza

Have you ever heard of a "BORSA crew?" Whistler RCMP might be interested in hearing from you. 

Police are investigating after Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) staff reported "multiple graffiti tags" defacing the Olympic Plaza playground, as well as the space behind the Olympic Plaza stage. 

"The graffiti said 'G ORP CREW' and 'BORSA CREW,'" according to Whistler police. 

There is no video available, and no suspects or witnesses have been identified at this time.

Police ask anyone with any information regarding the above files to get in touch with Whistler RCMP at 604-932-3044, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or to remain anonymous.
