Property crime up in Williams Lake…

WILLIAMS LAKE, BC: The Williams Lake RCMP is reminding residents and business owners to take preventative steps to ensure they don’t become victims of theft.

Police are pleading with the public to lock their vehicle doors and to not leave any valuables in their vehicles. It is a simple reminder, yet the RCMP continue to respond to calls in the community when residents leave their doors unlocked with valuables visible inside.

So far this year the Williams Lake RCMP have received 125 reports of thefts from vehicles. This is up 98% from this time last year”, says Inspector Jeff Pelley of the Williams Lake RCMP.

Some tips to curb property crime include:
– Do not leave any property in your vehicle;
– Use an anti-theft device;
– Park in open, visible areas;
– Light your driveway at night;
– Record the serial numbers of all items of value.

Police are committed to targeting multiple property offenders, responsible for these thefts and the locations in which these offences occur. RCMP remind the public to report any suspicious activity immediately.
