Clarenville RCMP continue investigation into thefts
No arrests made yet
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.
