Lake Cowichan RCMP responded to a complaint of an attempted break-in to a vehicle on Lakeview Avenue Nov. 29.

Const. Grant Desmet of the Lake Cowichan RCMP reported the suspect(s) appeared to be interrupted by the owner of the vehicle’s dog barking. Nothing appeared to be taken from the vehicle.

“A police dog was called out to the scene,” Desmet told the media, “however, police were unable to locate the suspect.”

Then on Nov. 30 Lake Cowichan RCMP again responded to several complaints of someone entering vehicles that were parked in the area of Arbutus Street, Nitinat Avenue, and Somenos Street. Numerous items appeared to be taken from the vehicles.

RCMP would like to remind people to lock their vehicles and ensure that valuables are kept out of sight. Police are asking that anyone with information contact the Lake Cowichan RCMP at  (250) 749-6668 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.
