Ladder leads to suspicion in Ucluelet

A suspicious ladder was found leaning against a residence in Ucluelet last week.

The homeowner had no idea where the ladder had come from and contacted police on June 23 around 6:30 p.m., according to Const. Chris Squire of the Ucluelet RCMP.

Nothing was missing from inside the residence and the ladder was too low for any suspected climbers to have reached a window it was placed under, according Squire.

“It didn’t look there was a break and enter it’s just kind of suspicious,” Squire said adding no damage was done to the outside of the residence.

He said an electrical crew was working in the area and could have stored the ladder on the side of the residence but acknowledged the possibility that someone may have been sneaking around trying to break in.

Squire encourages anyone with information to contact the Ucluelet RCMP detachment at 250-726-7773.
