A YOUNG man has been charged for thefts from unlocked vehicles this spring.
Brendin Edworthy, 18, has been charged with Possession of Stolen Property x 3, Possession of a Credit Card x 3, and Careless use of a Firearm and has been held in custody, said Terrace RCMP.
There were a high number of thefts from unlocked vehicles this spring. The Crime Reduction Unit initiated a campaign to get people to lock their doors by issuing positive tickets that were good for a free coffee to those vehicles that were checked in a parking lot and were locked with nothing visible inside. Locking your doors is the single most effective way to deter thieves, says Terrace RCMP media relations officer Const. Angela Rabut.
Terrace RCMP recovered numerous credit cards, various IDs, a wallet, GPS units, and various ammunition as a result of a search warrant on Park Ave. on April 23.
At the time of these offences, Edworthy was on a Recognizance of Bail with numerous conditions, which stemmed from a Breach of Undertaking by not abiding by a curfew that occurred on April 23.
