Spike in thefts from cars in Campbell River

The Campbell River RCMP are investigating several thefts from vehicles.

Overnight  December 13 into the early morning of December 14, 2104 suspects smashed a window of a Hummer vehicle parked at a residence on Taylor Way and stole a laptop.   This theft may be related to the residential break and enter on the same street, the same night.

Overnight December 13 and into the early morning of December 14, 2014 someone smashed the driver’s side window of a vehicle parked in the 800 block of 2nd Avenue and stole change out of the vehicle and a black bag from the glove box which was recovered one driveway over.

Overnight of the evening of Sunday December 14, 2014 into the early morning of December 15, 2014, several vehicles on Dahl Road, Wayne Road, Twillingtage Road, Montana Drive and Country Air Drive were entered and items such as a purse, ID, binoculars and change were stolen.  A wallet and unrelated identification were later recovered down on the sea walk near Twillingate Road.


Campbell River RCMP are reminding the public to lock their vehicles and be vigilant about calling police if you see or hear anything suspicious around your property.   We have received surveillance video from a couple of residences where males were seen entering unlocked vehicles, rummaged through and stealing items.  The males are described as Caucasian, late teens early 20’s both in blue jeans and light coloured winter jackets, possibly white or light grey.  One male had white runners, the other male had dark shoes. Neither male had hoodies or disguises and may not have looked suspicious to people looking out or driving by, since they were not disguised.  These males may be responsible for many of the thefts from vehicles on Twillingate Road, Dahl Road, Wayne Road, Montana Drive, Country Aire Drive, Maryland and possibly on Westgate and that area.

We are looking to identify these males as they are witnessed on video committing at least three thefts from vehicles at one residence on Twillingate Road on December 15, 2014.
