Daytime break and enter in Warfield

Lock your doors and lock your cars, advises Cpl. Devon Reid from the Greater Trail RCMP.

Police advise locals to lock their cars and doors after a purse was stolen from a Warfield home last week.

Lock your doors and lock your cars, advises Cpl. Devon Reid from the Greater Trail RCMP.

“In a small town like this, some don’t see a need and never lock (their) house, never lock (their) cars,” he said. “It’s unfortunate but the way the world is now.”

Early last week, in the middle of the day, someone entered a house in Warfield and stole a woman’s purse.

The crime was reported July 27, and may include a clue to the perpetrator.

A neighbour’s home surveillance caught a suspicious vehicle in the vicinity of the premises, though police still have to link that particular car to the crime.

“The vehicle was seen in the area but we haven’t confirmed a link to the break and enter yet,” said Cpl. Reid. “It’s still under investigation.”

Another break and enter was reported in Sunningdale but the suspect in that incident has already been caught and released with a court date.

“These are crimes of opportunity,” Reid said. “The best advice I can give is to always lock your doors and lock your cars.

“Most of these thieves don’t have the skill set to break into your car and steal the stuff. The only reason they are going in is because you left your car unlocked.”
