File # 2017-21431
Investigators are requesting the public’s help in identifying two persons believed to be involved in thefts from vehicles in our community.
On July 3rd, 2017, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a Theft from a Motor Vehicle on Williams Crescent, off Ferry Avenue in Prince George. Some cash and personal documents were stolen earlier that morning.
Surveillance images from the property show a male trying to open a locked car door before entering an unlocked pick-up truck. The male rummages through the truck, as a female accomplice appears to ‘keep watch’ on the street. The female then walks up a driveway across the street and tries to open a locked door on a vehicle, but is unsuccessful. The male exits the truck and walks to the neighbouring driveway where he attempts to open two more locked vehicles, unsuccessfully.
Surveillance video of one male and one female suspect attempting to open vehicle doors on a residential street. One unlocked truck is opened by the male and items stolen.
Please note that the video recorder time was set approximately three hours ahead of time and that the actual time of the offence was approximately 4:15 AM.
Of the five vehicles that the suspects attempt to open, simply by trying the door handle, four of them are locked and left unharmed. The truck is unlocked and has items stolen. All five vehicles were checked in about 90 seconds. Please ensure that your vehicles are locked whenever unattended and that valuables are never left in your vehicle. Invest in an anti-theft device.
All attempts by officers to identify these two individuals have been negative so far. Police are now requesting the public’s help in identifying them.
