Letter to the Editor
I wanted to let people know in the past week a prowler has been checking out people’s properties homes etc. around Shirley, especially Alderbrook and Seaside.
He is described as a young man with a camouflage hoodie.
He walks around with a flashlight looking into windows etc., and when confronted, he claims he has lost his dog. It sickens me that, in such a lovely place, we now have to make sure we lock gates, windows, doors, pull down the shades and so on.
Please share what you know and if you see this person please contact RCMP. He appears around 1 a.m.
Helene Harrison, Shirley
