On July 1 at approximately 3:15 in the morning residents of a home in Meridian Beach were woken up by the sound of their dog barking. They looked outside and witnessed people running from their garage to a white SUV which immediately fled the scene. Upon further inspection the homeowners discovered that the house was entered through an unlocked attached garage and a wallet was stolen from inside the home.
The RCMP request the cooperation of homeowners to help reduce property crime by locking up their property, removing valuables from vehicles, and reporting all suspicious activity to the RCMP when you see it.
