The West Shore RCMP would like to remind the public to lock their vehicle doors and keep valuables out of sight.
On June 28th 2019, a resident of View Royal provided the West Shore RCMP with this surveillance footage which depicts a female suspect trying to open the car doors for two vehicles parked on the complainant’s driveway. Luckily, this resident keeps their doors locked and the suspect walked away empty handed.
