The following are items of interest for the period of June 1-18, 2015:

PROPERTY CRIME:

Thefts from vehicles continue to be a problem across our community. Over the past few weeks we have seen thefts from all corners of the community. Some people opt to leave their doors unlocked or windows down to prevent damage by thieves (this does not always work and is less productive when people still leave things in their unlocked vehicle). If you are one of these people and someone has broken into your car please contact us. Regardless of if you think something was stolen or not, we need to know when and where these events are happening so that we can adjust our resources appropriately.

We have recently had thefts in Glenayre, Klahanie, Guildford way, off Parkside Drive, off April Rd and around Kyle Street. Some are from unlocked vehicles; others are having windows smashed out. The best way to prevent and stop thefts from vehicles is to stop leaving items in cars. If a thief is being driven by addiction all the loose change from various cars adds up quickly to feed their habit.

On June 4 at around 9pm a resident on Clearview Drive was watching TV in bed when her dog started barking and ran into the kitchen. She followed and found the dog barking at a male trying to break into the house through the kitchen door. She yelled at the male causing him to flee. A police dog track was unable to locate the suspect. Fortunately no access was gained. The suspect was described as a thin Asian male, 5’5” wearing a black jacket, ball cap and jeans.

If you’ve brought your bicycle out of storage and are enjoying riding through our lovely community, take a minute to write down the serial number and take a current image of the bike. Thieves love bikes. Sadly, most of the time owners don’t know the serial number. With a serial number we can flag a bike as stolen on CPIC…which means if an officer comes across you bike and runs the serial number we can return it to you.
