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:

• July 6, Trail and Greater District RCMP received a report that a male, 64, had his pants containing his wallet with his bank cards, credit cards, cash and truck keys stolen from the men’s change room at the aquatic centre after briefly leaving them unattended. The investigation is ongoing.

• July 7, Trail and Greater District RCMP received a report that an unknown suspect stole a stereo and a cordless drill from a deck, and a jackhammer, from an open garage in the 400 block of Binns Street. The homeowner reported seeing a suspicious black Chevrolet Avalanche with a partial licence plate of “6643” in the area.
