RCMP looking for tips in rash of crime in Hope

Theives broke into homes and cars in the Kawkawa Lake area

Did you notice something weird around Kawkawa Lake on Jan. 15?

The RCMP is seeking the public’s help with their investigation into a pair of break and enters, as well as thefts from vehicles in the area that night.

The investigation stems from reports made to the Hope RCMP on Jan. 15 of overnight break and enters to two homes, the theft from a vehicle in the 21000-block of Mount Hope Road and the theft from a vehicle parked in the 65000-block of Dogwood Drive.

As RCMP officers continue their investigation police are canvassing the neighbourhood and reaching out for home owners to review security camera recordings for images containing suspicious persons or vehicles over the night of Jan. 14 – 15.

“Police are also requesting anyone who may have experienced a theft from a vehicle parked in the area that night to call and report the incident,” says Const. Andrew Barr of the Hope RCMP.

Anyone with information regarding the investigation is urged to contact the Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
