RCMP says lock your doors after theft from vehicle

The Revelstoke RCMP is once again asking people to lock their doors after a GPS device was stolen from an unlocked vehicle on the weekend.

The Revelstoke RCMP is once again asking people to lock their doors after a GPS device was stolen from an unlocked vehicle on the weekend.

Sometime on the night of November 2-3, two unlocked vehicles in the 10th Street area were rummaged through and a Garmen GPS device valued at $100 was stolen from one of them, reported Staff-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen.

“This type of ‘crime of opportunity’ continues to occur in the Revelstoke area,” she said in a news release. “It is strongly suggested that all residence lock their vehicles when not in use.”

She said out of 33 vehicle thefts under $5,000, most were crimes of opportunity and very few were actual break-ins.

It is a similar situation with bicycle thefts. Early last month Olsen told the Times Review that of 35 stolen bikes, she was only aware of one that involved cutting through a lock.

Any one with information about the incident is asked to contact the RCMP detachment at 250-837-5255 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
