Break and enter

Another break and enter, on Nov. 19, reported two stolen Macbook Pros, an iPhone 8 and a Canadian passport. A press release from the RCMP says the homeowner was sleeping at the time of the break-in. Police want to remind residents that there is an increase in thefts, break and enters and fraud at this time of year, and to lock windows and doors.


Used needles found downtown

Local RCMP have received several reports of used needles found in businesses’ garbage bins downtown. “This is very concerning for local District employees who service these bins regularly,” a press release states.

Information about safe needle exchanges in Squamish can be found at 38075 2nd Avenue.


Canucks Facebook fraud

Someone reported to Squamish RCMP they paid for Vancouver Canucks tickets through Facebook Marketplace, only for the seller to stop communication after the e-transfer went through.

“Please be vigilant in dealing with online purchases and make sure you are using legitimate ticket sales websites,” the press release said. “The Squamish detachment has been designated as a safe swap site for the community and if you are purchasing items you can use our parking lot as an exchange location.”
