A couple of thefts from vehicles in town is again prompting RCMP to ask people to lock their cars.

On August 25, two unlocked vehicles had items stolen from them on Birch Street.

One vehicle had a purse, which included a wallet containing cash and all the victim’s ID and a camera taken sometime overnight.

At 8:35 p.m. the same day, a female also called to report she had a generator, chainsaw and a headlamp stolen from her unlocked 2012 Suburban.

The items were worth an estimated $2,500.

So far RCMP have no suspects in the thefts. Others who notice missing items from their vehicles are encouraged to contact the RCMP, as some items may be recovered by RCMP and the more information they can gather the better for the investigation.

Anyone with information in these incidents or the stolen property can contact the Fort St. James RCMP at 250-996-8269 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
