Brazen Theft at Fairview Wireless Repeater Site: Generators, Fuel Tank, Batteries, and Chargers Stolen
Fairview, August 29,2023 – In a shocking incident, our wireless repeater site located at Fairview Mountain above Keremeos was targeted by thieves who made away with valuable equipment, causing disruption to crucial communication services. The daring heist took place in the early hours, and law enforcement agencies have been informed and hopefully can apprehend the culprits and recover the stolen items.
The masked thieves managed to breach the site's security measures by shooting the lock off of the door, thereby gaining unauthorized access to the facility. Once inside, they brazenly seized two sizeable generators, a 50-gallon gas tank, as well as all the batteries and chargers essential for the operation of the wireless repeater site. The stolen equipment is estimated to be worth a substantial sum and plays a pivotal role in maintaining uninterrupted communication services for the region.
The authorities are urging anyone with information related to the theft or suspicious activity around the time of the incident to come forward and assist in the investigation. In the meantime, efforts are being made to restore the wireless communication services to their full capacity, mitigating the impact of the stolen equipment on the community.
A video of the thieves in action can be viewed at the link below.
We greatly appreciate your patience as we work to restore full functionality of our wireless Internet repeater site on Fairview Mountain.
