Burnaby RCMP create break and enter task force

The Burnaby RCMP's property crimes unit is so busy, the force has created at special break and enter task force.

"The protection of people's property is one of our highest priorities," said chief superintendent Dave Critchley in a press release. "Burnaby RCMP has no intention of allowing these crimes to continue unchallenged."

On Feb. 1 the Burnaby RCMP issued a warning about several incidents of theft from central mailboxes at two different locations in North Burnaby.

The task force will be lead by staff sergeant Andy Leclair.

Members of the public with any information about recent break-ins to homes or businesses can call the Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7618.
