Gun and ammo stolen in Beaver Creek

A rifle and ammunition was stolen from a resident in Beaver Creek. The incident is the latest in a rash of crime in the area this week.

A stolen rifle and ammunition have prompted Port Alberni RCMP to step up their manhunt for a suspect in a rash of break and enters in Beaver Creek

Police say that a Lugrin Road resident came to the detachment and reported that his Simonov SKS 7.6 rifle and ammunition was stolen from behind his truck between 9:30 p.m. and 7:15 a.m. the previous night. The rifle was kept in a black guitar case with a blue stripe on it, RCMP Cpl. Jen Allan said.

The rifle theft is the latest in a crime spree in the Pierce Road area of Beaver Creek. Police report that they are investigating four break-ins and thefts from residences and an RV business in the area.

RCMP members continue going door-to-door on Pierce Road delivering crime prevention information to residents in an effort to stem thefts and catch the person or persons responsible.

Residents are encouraged to collect as much information as possible about strange vehicles or people in their neighbourhoods.

All suspicious activity should be reported to the police as soon as it is observed, Allan said.

Anyone with information about the break ins and thefts is asked to call RCMP at 250-723-2424, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
