Agassiz:  RCMP are encouraging residents to ensure household doors and windows are secure before retiring for the night.

The reminder comes after a call was made to police on January 26, 2018 at approximately 2:45 am from a resident in the 2000-block of Aberdeen Drive to report a break and enter. Officers were told that a resident had startled an intruder inside of their home.  The suspect ran away once he was discovered.

“A barking pet woke the family. A wallet and key fob were stolen from inside the home,” says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD.

General Duty officers continue to pursue all investigational avenues into the break and enter.

Some prevention tips to protect your property from theft include;

  • An alarm is an effective deterrent.
  • Close and lock all windows and doors before retiring for the night.
  • Use motion sensing lights around the perimeter of your home.
  • Do not leave remote controlled garage door openers in your vehicle overnight.
