Chilliwack: RCMP are reminding everyone to be mindful of criminals who present different guises to enter your home.

The reminder follows calls received over the holiday season by police from people in the 45000-block of Oliver Crescent and the 1000-block of Columbia Valley Drive to report suspicious actions of individuals at their door.

The first incident occurred, at the end of 2017, where a person claiming to be a food delivery employee, knocked on the door of a house on Oliver Crescent, while in the New Year, another individual at the front door of a home on Columbia Valley Road attempted to solicit the use of a cell phone charger.

“In both instances the visitor was not permitted to enter and left when police were called. If a situation at the door with a stranger seems odd call us, someone needing help won’t mind,” says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD.

Some more helpful tips to protect your property and reduce crime in our community;

  • Representatives of recognized organizations carry accredited identification. Request to see their identification.
  • Do not leave a stranger alone at an unlocked door
  • Should you leave the door to reach for the phone, lock the door
  • Do not allow the stranger to enter your home
  • Call police, a person in distress will appreciate the assistance

RCMP reminds everyone who witnesses anything they believe is suspicious in nature to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
