Series of daytime break and enters in Black Creek

According to Comox Valley RCMP, the break and enters appear to be happening between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., when people are most likely away at work or out running errands

Police warn Black Creek and Merville residents to be on guard as a series of break and enters have occurred in the area last week.

According to Comox Valley RCMP, the break and enters appear to be happening between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., when people are most likely away at work or out running errands.

According to Const. Don Sinclair of the Comox Valley RCMP,  four break and enters happened between Oct. Tues. 4 and Wed. Oct. 5.

Items stolen included money, jewelry, household goods, electronics, silverware, and meat.

Over the next few weeks, police and community volunteers will be going door to door  to provide advice and information to homeowners in the area on how to better protect themselves.

“Police are asking neighbours to help each other by keeping and eye on each other’s homes and property,” said a Comox Valley RCMP news release. “Be aware of suspicious vehicles in the area. If possible, obtain plate numbers and notify the police of any suspicious activity.”

Police also suggest questioning service and contract workers as the thieves could be using fake advertising to disguise themselves.

Anyone with information on these crimes is asked to contact the Comox Valley RCMP at 250-338-1321 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
