Penticton and South Okanagan
Holiday heist help
Dec 20, 2012 / 2:52 pm
Penticton RCMP responded to a report of an unsecured residence on Huth Avenue in the early morning of December 17. Police found that a window in the door to the residence had been smashed and it was learned that the occupants of the residence were away.
Contact with the family was eventually made and it was determined that a small safe, containing jewelry and gold bars, was taken as well as a television, clothing, Christmas gifts, liquor and a DVD player.
RCMP want to remind residents who may be away during the holidays to ensure that their homes are properly secured and, if possible, to have someone look in on their property from time to time.
Not only is this a good means of ensuring that your residence is secure but also many insurance companies have a clause where this is required in the winter in the event that your heat goes out or a pipe bursts. Where possible you want to ensure that your residence looks like someone is home, which deters thieves. This includes such things as light timers and ensuring that your driveway or walk is cleared of snow.
If you have any concerns or questions concerning home security you can contact the Community Policing Unit at the Penticton RCMP.
