Attempted break-ins

Police are cautioning vehicle owners after last week's power outage.

During the power outage on Nov. 16, Nakusp RCMP received reports of an unknown person trying to break into vehicles. Approximately three reports were made in total.

Nakusp RCMP would like to encourage residents not to leave any valuable belongings in their cars, but instead keep them locked in their residences.

“If you have a carport, we strongly encourage them to secure it inside a garage if at all possible,” said Corporal Jason Burndred of the Nakusp RCMP. “Unfortunately during power outages, you have to be extra vigilant with your property.”

Cpl. Burndred said while Nakusp is a very safe community, there is a criminal element in town, and they will take advantage of things such as power outages.

If you find your vehicle has been rummaged through, call the RCMP and do not touch anything.

“If residents ever observe anything suspicious, just give us a call,” said Cpl. Burndred. “If you see anything unusual, don’t hesitate to call our office, and we’ll investigate it.”
