However, in one incident a home-owner encountered the thief, who fled without taking anything or harming her.

Since home entry is typically gained through unlocked or inadequately secured windows police are starting there with their security warnings.

They say open windows are not a wise warm weather response, in an unoccupied home and they should be closed and locked.

They’re also recommending dead bolts be installed on all exterior doors, including sliding doors.

They’re also looking for public assistance in catching those responsible for the break-ins and 250-787-8140 or 1-800-222-8477 are the numbers to call with any suspicious activity or past incident information.
