Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Every year members of the KRPF respond to numerous calls regarding thefts from motor vehicles. Things like GPS devices, purses, laptops, cell phones, IPods, money, and gift cards are stolen. These things are hot ticket items because they are easily pawned or sold for quick cash. This happens because vehicles are left unlocked with property inside.

In 2016 members of the KRPF are hoping to see a reduction in property crime and theft. It is very easy to prevent becoming a victim of “car shopping”.  Three simple steps will go a long way to reducing the chance of being a target:

  1. Remove any item that could be of value to a thief.  The most popular items are listed above but they are not the only things that are stolen. Any electronic device (PSPs, video games, portable DVD players, etc) should be brought inside when the vehicle is not in use. If thieves can see it, they will steal it.
  2. Take your keys inside with you and lock your vehicle. This is extremely important! A locked vehicle is a major deterrent for criminals. They do not want to make any unnecessary noise by fighting with a locked vehicle. However, leaving keys in the car is very inviting for a thief. If you want to keep your car, bring your keys inside with you.
  3. Park safely. If you park in your garage remember to shut the garage door and make sure the man door is locked. If you do not have a garage, be sure to park in a well-lit area. Turn your outside lights on at night so your cars remain lit.

Theft of ATV

On March 14th, 2016 the Kennebecasis Regional Police Force received a report of a stolen Red Cam-Am Four-Wheeler from the Hammond River Road area. The theft occurred between the hours of 2-4pm and police are asking the public for assistance. If you have seen: ATV’s in the area of Hammond River Road, or Highway 100 being transported by trailer or in back of a pickup truck between these hours, or if you have dash cam footage during this time frame to contact police.

Kennebecasis Valley Crime Stoppers will pay up to $2000 reward for anyone who has information that leads to the arrest of the individual(s) responsible. Remember, Crime Stoppers wants your information, not your name. Please contact Crime Stoppers with any information at:

Telephone: 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)

Online: https://www.tipsubmit.com/WebTips.aspx?AgencyID=212

Text: 'TIP212 and your information' to CRIMES (274637)

The Push for Change

On Friday, February 26th, 2016 members from the Kennebecasis Regional Police Force and other police agencies from around New Brunswick attended a motivational speech at St. Thomas University Campus in Fredericton.

Joe Roberts is also known as the Skid Row CEO.  When he talks about his passion for helping the homeless, he knows what they’re going through from a first-hand experience.  He lived on the streets of Vancouver addicted to drugs before, with the assistance of others including a police officer who saw the potential in him, turned his life around and eventually became the CEO of a multi-million dollar company.

Beginning in May, he’ll be taking that passion across Canada in the Push for a Change. He’ll be pushing a shopping cart across the country for 517 days as part of a national awareness and youth empowerment project to help end youth homelessness.

You can find out more about the Push for Change and Joe Roberts at his website www.skidrowceo.com

Youth arrested for theft of vehicle

On Thursday, March 03rd, 2016 at approximately 4am this morning, officers from the Kennebecasis Regional Police Force and Saint John Police Force were searching for a maroon colour Ford F-150, that was reported stolen and involved in a hit and run from the Best Western Hotel in Saint John.

At 8am this morning, the vehicle was located by the RCMP on the Kingston Peninsula and failed to stop. The Kennebecasis Regional Police Force spotted the vehicle coming off the Gondola Point Ferry heading southbound on Highway #119.

Officers pursued the vehicle until it stopped where the suspects fled from the vehicle on Lake Road, Quispamsis.  A short foot chase occurred and Kennebecasis Regional Police Force officers arrested both subjects.

This matter is still under investigation by police agencies for the charges of: Theft of Motor Vehicle, Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Failing to Stop for Police and Breach of Probation.

A friendly reminder for motorists

As you clean off your car and get ready to head out, please remember to clear the windshield from any ice or snow. Properly defrost your windshield to allow for clear visibility. Failure to do so is a $172.50 fine under the New Brunswick Motor vehicle act Section 238 (1) (a).

238 (1) No person shall operate on a highway a motor vehicle (a) with any non-transparent material on the front windshield, side wings or side or rear windows of such vehicle
