OMAK – The Colville Tribal Emergency Operations Center and Colville Tribal Area Agency on Aging are looking for information related to a break in and theft of tools and equipment from the Omak Senior Meal Site.

When Senior Meal Site staff arrived at work Monday, they noticed a lock broken at a storage container outside of the facility. Items missing from the container included, but are not limited to:

(2) Gas powered weed eaters

(2) Lawnmower

(1) Leaf blower

Various hand tools, including shovels, rakes, mauls and axes

Gas cans

AAoA uses the tools to provide elders with assistance with chores. 

Across the Omak district last year the program worked regularly to complete chores for approximately 45 elders, and as part as the COVID-19 response the EOC and AAoA program have served approximately 85 elders daily over the last several weeks. 

AAoA has begun to purchase new tools to continue serving elders, and the program reported the theft to the Colville Tribal Police Department.

If you have information, please call the Colville Tribal Police Department at 509-634-2472.

If you have elders who are in need of assistance, please call the Colville Tribal EOC at 509-634-7350.
