Lock your doors, Revelstoke RCMP warn

The Revelstoke RCMP are warning people to lock their car doors after thefts occurred from several vehicles Tuesday night.

The Revelstoke RCMP are once again warning people to lock their car doors after thefts occurred from several vehicles in Southside Tuesday night.

RCMP say several vehicles on the 700 block between Fourth and Fifth Street east were either broken into or entered through unlocked doors between Tuesday, Sept. 1, at 9 p.m., and the following morning.

The vehicles were ransacked and various items including cash, CDs and other valuables were stolen.

A suspect has been arrested and is being questioned by police.

The thefts have prompted yet another warning from the RCMP for people to lock their doors and secure their valuables either in the trunk or in their homes.

“It is strongly encouraged to keep valuables out of site from the temptation of car prowlers,” said Cpl. Thomas Blakney in a news release.

This is an ongoing issue for the RCMP. A similar warning was sent out the previous week when three thefts from motor vehicles, two break-and-enters and one bicycle theft occurred at various locations around town.

In 2013, RCMP conducted a walkaround where they placed tags on vehicles that were left unlocked. They found one in four vehicles were left unlocked on Revelstoke streets.

Police also ask people to report thefts to them, and not just on the Stoke List or other social media.
