Tail­gate theft one of many sim­i­lar crimes re­ported in re­cent months: RCMP

The Compass - - EDITORIAL - Ed­i­tor@cb­n­com­pass.ca

The re­cent theft of a tail­gate from a pickup truck parked near the Trans Canada High­way is one of many sim­i­lar crimes re­ported over the last few months, ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

The lat­est incident hap­pened overnight last Tues­day at a commuter park­ing lot near the Trans Canada High­way and Sal­monier Line. A Holy­rood RCMP news re­lease said thefts and ve­hi­cle dam­age cases like this have popped up at park­ing lots from Wit­less Bay Line to the Vet­eran’s Me­mo­rial High­way.

Items re­ported stolen in­clude tires, rims, tail­gates and light bars. Some items were also taken from in­side ve­hi­cles. Po­lice are re­mind­ing ve­hi­cle own­ers to make sure they se­cure their prop­erty and avoid leav­ing valu­ables vis­i­ble a parked ve­hi­cle.

RCMP pa­trols will con­tinue in these ar­eas, and any­one with in­for­ma­tion to share is asked to con­tact Holy­rood RCMP or Crimestop­pers.
