Within the past approximately two weeks, the Sea to Sky Whistler RCMP have seen a significant increase in thefts from and of motor vehicles. The Sea to Sky Whistler RCMP received reports from residents of multiple neighbourhoods, including Rainbow, Whistler Village, Nordic, Spruce Grove, Cheakamus and Black Tusk Village.

We are asking anyone who may have video surveillance or who noticed anything suspicious in these neighbourhoods over the past few weeks to contact our investigators, said Constable Katrina Boehmer, Media Relations Officer for Sea to Sky Whistler RCMP. Sometimes people think they’ve seen something unusual or out of the norm, but don’t want to contact police because they think their suspicions may be incorrect. We want individuals to contact us so that we can determine whether any crimes have been committed.

In light of the recent increase in thefts of and from vehicles, police are asking the public to review the following crime prevention tips and share them with others:

These tips, and others, can be found at BC RCMP - Preventing theft from and of vehicles (rcmp-grc.gc.ca).

Anyone with any information regarding the above files are asked to contact the Sea to Sky Whistler RCMP at 604-932-3044, or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or go to the website www.solvecrime.ca.
