Terrace break-and-enter numbers spike

  • Jul. 31, 2013 4:00 p.m.

Terrace RCMP has responded to 17 break-and-enter calls since July 15, and is telling the public to be conscientious about security.

“The public is reminded to keep their homes secure – doors locked, lower windows closed, good lighting,” inspector Dana Hart said in an email.

A source who would prefer to remain unnamed said that the thieves are targeting easily portable items like electronics and move in and out of the targetted residence very quickly.

Hart said that thefts from unlocked vehicles are happening as well.

“The public is asked to immediately report any suspicious activity to police,” he added.

Inspector Hart said he cannot comment on suspects but that local police are investigating the thefts.
