Rash of crime in Black Creek

The Comox Valley RCMP have been kept busy responding to numerous files in the Black Creek area over the last couple of months.

Many of the Black Creek residents have been victims of theft and vandalism. The offences include break and enters, theft from automobiles, other thefts and acts of vandalism, the most common of which is graffiti. The Comox Valley RCMP believe one or two groups of individuals are responsible for these crimes and are hoping to put an end to their activities with the help of the public. Anyone with information on these thefts and acts of vandalism are asked to contact the Comox Valley RCMP at (250)338-1321 or anonymously to Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
