Spike in small thefts near Rosedale

Police ask residents to be vigilant in Popkum area

There has been a spike in thefts from vehicles in the Popkum/Rosedale area over the last week, Agassiz RCMP said. Sgt. Stuart Falebrinza is asking residents to stay vigilant and to report anything suspicious.

Even though these thefts are relatively small “they are important to the RCMP”, he said, adding that they hope to identify a suspect in the near future.

There have been both thefts and suspicious activity reported over the last week.

A wallet was stolen from a vehicle on Parkwood Drive on Oct. 1.

Then on Oct. 3, a man who lives on Fir Road was woken up by his dog’s barking. When he looked outside, he noticed two men at his vehicle. When he went outside, the men left in a van, described as a possible late ’90s, grey Chevy Venture.

Three vehicles had their windows smashed at Bridal Falls on Thanksgiving Monday. Numerous items were stolen from the vehicles, which all belonged to tourists traveling through the area. Falebrinza noted that one of the families was visiting from Germany and lost everything, including their suitcases.

RCMP are investigating those thefts, and also reports that several vehicles were broken into at the Rose Garden Estates in Popkum. Those thefts occurred on Oct. 7, and many small items such as cell phone chargers were stolen.

Anyone with any information about these thefts is asked to call the Agassiz RCMP at 604-796-2211.
