Cheque fraud

Squamish RCMP believe a theft from a mailbox in the 39000 block of Government Road is part of an ongoing series of such break-ins. In late September, cheques stolen from the mailbox were later used at a local business. An RCMP press release said residents can contact Cpl. Angie Kermer at the Squamish RCMP for resources, as local residents organize neighbourhood efforts to report suspicious activity.
