On the evening of Saturday June 8, officers were called to a residence on the 1400-block of 20th Avenue for a break and enter that occurred sometime earlier that day.  Entry was gained through an open ground level window and a 32-inch television was stolen.

At approximately 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday June 11, the Prince George RCMP were called to a break and enter at a residence on the 1800 block of Tamarack Street.  The incident occurred at some point during the day.  Entry was gained through an unlocked window.  Various items were stolen including a laptop, 32-inch television, portable DVD player and frozen food.

In one of the incidents above, an alarm was in place, but not activated. 

Prince George RCMP recently responded to four reports of break and enters where front doors were left unlocked.  With the weather getting warmer, RCMP want to remind home owners to ensure windows and doors are shut and locked before leaving their homes.  The use of an alarm system is also encouraged to not only detect, but deter would-be thieves. 

If you find yourself a victim of a break and enter, do not touch anything and call police right away.
