  • Sep. 7, 2012 6:00 a.m.

A number of thefts have taken place over the past week, and RCMP are reminding residents to make sure they lock their vehicles.

On Aug. 28, RCMP report that a boat trailer was located under the Agassiz/Rosedale Bridge. The trailer had been reported stolen from Chilliwack earlier in the day. The trailer has been returned to its rightful owner.

Then on the morning of Sept. 1, some smaller items were stolen from a vehicle. The vehicle was parked at the Kent Fitness/ Activity Centre, and left unlocked. The thief gained entry through the unlocked door.

Sgt. Stuart Falebrinza said it’s a reminder to everyone to lock your vehicle, even when leaving it for a very short time.

On Sept. 3, a construction site on Bridal Falls Road reported that one of their storage trailers had been broken into. The thief or thieves stole numerous items, including tools, saws, a dirt bike and a planer unit.

Guns and drugs found

Agassiz RCMP have encountered serious crime incidents over the past week.

On Sept. 2, a vehicle was stopped on the West Harrison Service Road. Police smelled a fresh odor of marijuana in the vehicle. When they looked further, they located marijuana and three firearms. The firearms were seized for further investigation and the driver of the vehicle has been charged for driving while prohibited. The vehicle was seized for seven days.

The following day, at about midnight, RCMP stopped a vehicle on Pioneer Ave. in Agassiz. The driver was identified as a prolific offender in the local area. Police searched his vehicle, only to find heroin, cocaine and two edged weapons.

Sgt. Falebrinza said that “removing drug dealers from our streets, and grow operations from our community is a policing priority for the Agassiz RCMP.”

Anyone with information regarding the above incidents is asked to contact the Agassiz RCMP Detachment at 604-796-2211.

Sgt. Falebrinza would like to remind all motorists to obey the posted speed limit as school is back in session.
