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.
Four bikes were reported stolen last week, two from the 38000 block of Westway Avenue. The other bikes were taken from the 40000 block of Willow Crescent: a blue and white Rocky Mountain Vertex and a grey and orange Kona Kahuna. Their combined value totals $3,100.
