Crime spike sparks warning
Prince George , BC- The Prince George RCMP are warning members of the public of recent property crime spikes in specific urban and rural areas
Upwards of 25 Mischief and Theft from Vehicle reports have been made to the Detachment since September 1st in the Heritage/Tabor area in the City of Prince George. Suspects are breaking into or attempting to break into vehicles throughout this area during the late night or early morning.
Theft of Vehicles and Break & Enters are the theme in the Buckhorn/Pineview area just outside City limits. Since September 1st there have been several of these crimes reported in this area. Thieves are active in these areas during the day, while people are not home.
Both of these spikes are unusual and investigators do not believe the same persons are responsible for both increases. Police are actively engaged in both these investigations and are looking for the public’s help in identifying the persons responsible. Police are asking residents to review surveillance images they may have and report all suspicious activity no matter what time of day.
