Sun Peaks residents should be aware that six break and enters have been reported to the RCMP. These were believed to have occurred overnight Oct. 5 in the 5000 block of Sun Peaks Rd. Suspects entered the residences by prying open back windows of the units & were targeting flat screen TVs.
Residents are reminded to report any suspicious activity in their area.
“Residents of Sun Peaks should be familiar with what’s happening in their neighbourhood,” says Wes Waters, RCMP Rural Detachment commander. “Certainly, if people see somebody carrying TVs or anything suspicious, they should report it. The problem is a lot of people don’t know their neighbours. It’s easier to phone the police when you see (suspicious activity) than it is to let it go. We certainly don’t mind looking into it; it’s easier to look into something at the time, than to try to backtrack to find somebody who witnessed it.”
To report any suspicious activity in your neighbourhood call RCMP at 250-314-1800.
