The Campbell River RCMP has seen a spike over the past few of days in the numbers of reported break, enter and thefts. We are investigating and analyzing the information to see if any of these are linked and determine who is responsible.
We are asking the public to please report any suspicious activity, day or night. Sometimes it is the small tip that is the important link we need to solve crime. Please take precautions to protect your valuables, lock your vehicles, take all valuables inside your home, keep large outdoor items out of sight and report crimes as soon as possible after they happen, so if the suspects are still in the area, police may have a chance at apprehension.
