Second theft reported in Harrison this month

Fencing materials stolen from Lillooet Avenue property

Not long after the early November break-ins into seven Harrison Hot Springs mailboxes, another theft has taken place in the village – this time, over 12 cedar fence panels were taken from the 400 block of Lillooet Avenue. The homeowners had been constructing a fence and say the materials stolen are valued at approximately $1,000.

A police investigation revealed that a vehicle had been driven onto the property where the panels were stolen. It’s believed the theft occured Nov. 12 between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. The thieves allegedly came prepared, using tools to deconstuct the fence materials for removal.

“There have been some thefts in Harrison Hot Springs lately and I want to remind all residents to take steps to safe guard their property from thieves,” said Sgt. Rennie.

The police ask anyone with information in relation to the theft to contact them at (604) 796-2211.
