Lock up your goats...

Lock up your goats everyone...

Someone is stealing goats in Chilliwack. Seven pregnant goats were stolen from a property last week. They have since been recovered in Langley. Apparently thieves really will steal anything!

Surrey Activity

Break and enters in Surrey seem to be targeting cigarettes. Several stores selling cigarettes have been hit, with one where thieves gained entry by the roof.

Vehicle theft in Port Kells is very high recently with over 40 occurences last month.

Port Kells is also reporting a high incidence of postal theft. One business reports losing $30,000. Thieves steal cheques and re-do the amount and name of recipient. This is a big problem everywhere, our own postal box has been broken into and vandalized numerous times. We are now able to have our mail hand delivered and were for a number of months collecting mail for our whole complex. Our mailboxes are mounted to a wall outside our building and we were unable to obtain permission to build a cage around it. We have built enclosures for mail kiosks for different complexes as well as gating off access to mail rooms. Now Canada Post will supply their own lock and keys which is fine with us and is a great step in the right direction over years past.

Stealing from our Veterans...

I have just been sent info on a Poppy Legion Scam...

To all businesses in the Surrey area, specifically Port Kells and Cloverdale.

An unknown female is coming into businesses that are selling poppies  and saying she is with the Legion and that she is collecting the money for poppy sales. The female is Caucasian and aproximately 22 years old. She is identifying herself as Jessica. There is no further description or any known vehicle.

The Crime Prevention Program Co-ordinator is asking that the poppy donations are protected by insuring that the funds are picked up by a legitimate Legion Member who will have a name tag and an ID card and will probably be in uniform.

If you spot the female stealing funds you are asked to call 9-1-1. If you have further info on this woman and she is not currently on your property, please call the non-emergency number at 604 599-0502.

I know this outrages us all.  Jessica, wherever you are, grow a heart and a conscience!
