Kings District RCMP are investigating eight break and enters where homes, garages and sheds were broken into and items stolen.
The break and enters into sheds and garages are occurring during all hours of the day and homes are being targeted when homeowners are away from their residences.
‘The RCMP are taking this very seriously and we will not allow the person/s committing these crimes to continue to steal from the people of Kings County,’ says Cst. Kelli Gaudet, Kings County District RCMP. ‘We are urging Kings County residents to ensure their vehicles, sheds and homes are locked and for businesses to install appropriate security measures.’
Kings District RCMP are asking anyone who notices suspicious activity, people or vehicles, to report such incidents to the police at the time so that they may be investigated. Beware of offers to sell used items such as tools, jewellery and electronics for far below normal retail value, such incidents should also be reported to the police.
If you have any information on these break and enters, please contact the Kings District RCMP or the Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), text TIP202 + your message to ‘CRIMES’ (274637) or by secure web tips at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca. Calls to Crime Stoppers are not taped or traced and if police make an arrest and lay charges based on a tip, callers qualify for a cash reward from $50-$2000.
