Tofino residence robbed

A Pacific Rim Highway residence was broken into on July 23.

 

The owners of a Pacific Rim Highway residence went out for a hike on July 23 and returned home to find several of their electronic devices had been stolen.

The stolen items included an iPhone, iPad, and iPod, according to Tofino RCMP detachment commander Sgt. Blaine Mumford.

Mumford told the Westerly News there were no signs of forced entry at the scene and the thief, or thieves, ignored larger items of value while committing the crime.

“It looks like either a door was left unlocked or a key that was hidden outside was used to enter,” he said. “Whoever did it, it looks like they were in and out quite quickly.”

An investigation is ongoing and anyone with any information about the theft is encouraged to contact the detachment at 250-725-3242.

Mumford is advising West Coasters to lock up and protect themselves from summer’s rise in crime.

“It’s a reminder to everyone that it’s summertime and there’s lots of people around; it pays to double check that you’ve locked your doors and windows,” he said.

“I know in Tofino, and Ucluelet, people sometimes hesitate to lock their doors and they feel like they shouldn’t have to but, unfortunately, we’re in the day in age where it’s better safe than sorry.”
