Victim sleeps in trailer to prevent theft

On March 4, Lumby RCMP received a report of an attempted B&E in the 700 block of Fraser Road. 

The owner reported two nights earlier, his dog had alerted him someone was trying to break into his travel trailer. 

The owner decided to sleep in it to see if they came back. 

At about 1 a.m., he heard voices outside and someone appeared to be trying the lock. 

The owner scared them off and they fled on foot and were not located. 

All residents are reminded to keep doors and windows locked and be aware of all activities in your neighbourhood and report any suspicious people or activities in your area.
