Once again the time approaches where those annoying “porch pirates” gain momentum as you order those special gifts for your loved ones for the Christmas season. Protecting your property is of utmost importance especially during this holiday season.
Take precautions with your vehicle, your home and any other property that is easily accessible to those who want to take advantage of a situation. Do not leave valuables in plain sight in your vehicle. Leave lights on and windows and doors locked to your home. Do you have outside motion sensor lights? Do you have any security cameras on your property? If so, and you live within the city of Sarnia, register your camera with the Sarnia Police Service. You can do this on line at: https://www.sarniapolice.com/camera-registry/
Report any suspicious activity in your neighbourhood. Get a good look so you can provide a description of the individual or the vehicle and the last direction of travel. These “crooks”, “thieves” and “fraudsters” are crafty and sly and be quite bold in their activities. Home owners need to be vigilant and take all precautions in protecting all of their properties.
If you know of anyone involved in this type of illegal activity or have any information on someone who has committed a theft of personal property, contact Sarnia Lambton Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or you can go on-line at www.p3tips.com. You will remain anonymous and you could receive a cash reward for the information you provide.
