Clarenville RCMP are con­tin­u­ing their in­ves­ti­ga­tion into a se­ries of thefts com­mit­ted in Clarenville in mid-Novem­ber.

“It looks like peo­ple are try­ing cars, and any that are un­locked they’re tak­ing any change they might find, and if any­body has a shed open they’d take some­thing that they can eas­ily re­move,” ex­plained Staff Sgt. Larry Turner.

He says po­lice are fol­low­ing a cou­ple of leads based on tips they re­ceived.

The in­ci­dents, of which a half dozen have been re­ported, have oc­curred all over Clarenville. Turner says it’s hard to iden­tify whether it’s the same per­son or peo­ple com­mit­ting the thefts or if the events are un­re­lated.

The al­leged thefts were re­ported mostly within the week of Nov. 7-14, and there have been no re­ported in­ci­dents since then.

No ar­rests have been made yet. So far, no homes have been bro­ken into.

Po­lice is­sued an ad­vi­sory on Nov. 19, re­mind­ing res­i­dents to lock up in light of the re­cent events.
