Watch your car, ‘cause someone else might be too

By Mike Haslip

Since November 11, almost a dozen Blaine residents have had items stolen from their cars. Most of the vehicle prowls and thefts have been reported in the Salishan neighborhood, on Harrison, Adelia and Blaine avenues.

Other thefts have occurred in Semiahmoo and Peace Arch Plaza development near the border. Officers would like to remind car owners that there are some habits they can adopt to help prevent being victimized.

Thieves target small items that are easy to carry and conceal. Remove the valuables from your car at night: items like wallets, cell hones, CDs and money are easy to steal and conceal. Also lock your car doors, and detach your stereo faceplates. Park your car in a lighted area within sight of a window if you can. Officers are providing extra patrol to the residential areas at night, and would appreciate calls from the public about any suspicious activity they might observe.
