Police report assault, thefts in Trail

Lock up your belongings advise the Trail and Greater District RCMP

Following a series of property crimes in Warfield and Trail last weekend, district police are reminding locals to practice prevention by locking up their belongings.

“The Trail and Greater District Detachment RCMP remind the public not to leave any valuable items outside on their property, unattended in public spaces, and inside their vehicles due to the risk of theft,” the detachment advises. “The public taking pro-active preventative action will help reduce the amount of theft in the Trail area.”

Police Briefs:
