Theft from cars on the rise at Popkum and Bridal Falls

Car windows smashed to gain access to loose change

RCMP are reporting that the Popkum/Bridal Falls area has experienced a significant rise in the number of theft from autos over the past two weeks.

Various items have been stolen when vehicles were left unlocked, and when items were left in plain view. And when the vehicles have been locked, the windows wee smashed to steal the contents.

They are asking that absolutely anyone who has been a victim of a vehicle break-in reports it as soon as possible, no matter how insignificant the theft may be.

“Police need to know when and where these types of crimes are happening,” said Cpl. Dwayne Farlin.

He provided a run down of thefts they are currently aware of over the last week. They include two vehicles being broken into in Rosewood Estates on Oct. 9, where a cell phone charger and loose change were stolent, and a theft from a vehicle at Parkwood Drive on Oct. 13, where keys and a camera were stolen.

On Oct. 15, there were several thefts from vehicles. A purse was stolen from one vehicle on Parkwood Drive. A golf bag, clubs and golf shoes were stolen from Royalwood Blvd. A wallet and cell phone were stolen from an undisclosed address, and a wallet, coins and camera equipment were stolen from a car on Block Elgey Road.

Residents are reminded not to leave their valuables in their vehicle when it’s unattended, even when locked.

To report a theft, or if you have information about a crime, phone the Agassiz RCMP at 604-796-2211.
