Merville, Black Creek plagued by break-and-enters

Comox Valley RCMP would like the public to be aware of an increase in daytime break-and-enter occurrences in the Black Creek and Merville area.
The break and enters appear to be happening between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. These hours are when many people are away from their homes working or running errands.
Police are asking neighbours to help each other by keeping an eye on each others' homes and property. They urge the public to question service and contact workers and let them know you are aware that they are in your neighbourhood as suspects may be disguised with false advertising.
RCMP add to be aware of suspicious vehicles in the area. If possible, obtain plate numbers and notify the police of any suspicious activity.
Over the next few weeks police and community volunteers will be going door to door to provide advice and information to homeowners in the Black Creek and Merville communities.
Anyone with information on these crimes is asked to contact Comox Valley RCMP at 250-338-1321 or to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
