LISIMS/NASS Valley RCMP are warning the public about a nighttime prowler roaming around the village of New Aiyansh.

This person has tried to enter a residence at least once and is out in the early morning hours going into front yards and backyards and looking in windows, said police.

“This is of great concern to police who are requesting the citizens of the area be diligent in locking their windows and doors,” said Const. Spencer Owen of Lisims/Nass Valley RCMP.

The prowler is described as wearing dark clothing and a mask or hood and reports suggest this person is carrying or monitoring a hand-held VHF radio, said police.

Police continue to investigate to locate and identify this person and the public’s assistance is required.

The public is asked to report any suspicious people, vehicles, or occurrences as soon as they are seen and to call police.
