Break and Entry reports continue to keep Prince Rupert RCMP busy

An uptick in crime in the city is being found with a string of break and entries taking place at both commercial buildings and home residences across the city, the most recent one of note taking place earlier this month.

In a media release from Monday, the Prince Rupert detachment of the RCMP highlighted an incident on the city's east side, with a break in along the 900 block of Prince Rupert Boulevard resulting in the theft of 600 dollars in toonies and a necklace from a residence.

On March 3rd, the homeowner returned to their home home for lunch and discovered a window had been pried open, with the items then discovered as missing.
