Break-ins on the rise in east Duncan neighbourhood

Duncan – On Feb 18th the shed beside our home was broken into. Irreplaceable items were stolen. We made a police report and the police told us that we were the third house in our neighbourhood that day to report break-ins.

The neighbourhood includes McKinstry, Wharncliffe, Marchmont, Watson and Beech, or you can say the blocks east of the Trans Canada, north of the Cowichan River, south of Trunk and west of Campbell.

I want all my community to be aware of these crimes and that even items secured in a fortified shed with cut proof padlocks are not safe against thieves. We need more streetlights on certain areas of that neighbourhood, but most of all we need certain people to stop thieving!

If anyone knows information about these crimes or others, call the RCMP or Crime Stoppers. As a community, we have to turn these people in. Stop these thieves from becoming even harder criminals.
