Thefts from vehicles on the rise in Port Alberni

Over this past weekend (Oct. 22-23), the Port Alberni RCMP Detachment responded to seven reports of thefts from vehicles.

Port Alberni have responded to several reports of vehicles thefts lately.

Over this past weekend (Oct. 22-23), the Port Alberni RCMP Detachment responded to seven reports of thefts from vehicles, all occurring through the nighttime hours.

In one instance a group of teens was seen looking into vehicles and trying to gain access into the vehicles parked on the street. The suspects are described as two males one taller and one shorter, approximately 16-18 years of age, wearing dark hoodies and backpacks. The two females were wearing white face masks.  In a few other cases, vehicles were left unlocked and the suspects rummaged through the vehicles stealing anything they could.  And in three other instances, the suspects smashed windows to gain access.

The public is reminded to ensure that vehicles are locked and all belongings are removed, leaving nothing in the vehicle.  Where possible park your vehicle in a garage or in a well lit area.

If you have any information on these crimes, please contact the Port Alberni RCMP Detachment at 250-723-2424 or Alberni Valley Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
