The Williams Lake RCMP are issuing a warning to the community in hopes of reducing the risks and frequency in an ongoing investigation surrounding a spree of property thefts from vehicles and residences.
During the last number of weeks, 12 quality bicycles have been reported stolen; and police understand that there may be more although they have not been reported.
A number of ATVs have been reported stolen and on a very regular basis, vehicles are entered and property is stolen. This can range from wallets, purses, sun glasses, GPS and other items.
The RCMP encourage residents to share this information with family and friends in hopes of eliminating this type of crime.
People are encouraged to lock vehicles and buildings, record serial numbers and leave nothing of value in vehicles.
Should anyone see a crime occurring or suspicious people in their neighbourhoods that normally are not there, call the police immediately .
If anyone has information regarding these crimes, they are requested to call the Williams Lake RCMP at 250-392 6211 or Crime stoppers at 1800 222 8477.
