Some help­ful tips

• Cabin break-ins — These have been an on­go­ing con­cern. This district has ex­pe­ri­enced an in­crease in these in­ci­dents over the past sev­eral months. It is quite ob­vi­ous we are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a very mild win­ter which pro­vides for easy ac­cess into our cabin ar­eas. The Trin­ity Con­cep­tion RCMP are ac­tively work­ing to de­ter and ap­pre­hend the per­son/s re­spon­si­ble.

We en­cour­age cabin own­ers to make fre­quent vis­its to their prop­er­ties and those of friends. Do not dis­turb the scene, re­port as soon as pos­si­ble any dis­cov­ery of break and en­ters and fol­low the ad­vice of the of­fi­cer. Re­port sus­pi­cious per­sons, ve­hi­cles or ac­tiv­ity. Know what is in your cabin, have valu­able items marked for iden­ti­fi­ca­tion or sim­ply don’t leave valu­able items at the cabin.

A thor­ough list of ALL missing items, se­rial num­bers or iden­ti­fi­able mark­ings and value, should be pro­vided to the in­ves­ti­ga­tor as soon as pos­si­ble.
