Last Tuesday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm a house on Crestmont Dr was broken into. Thieves entered the home through a basement window. The entire house was gone through, and many personal items along with alcohol were taken. No serious property damage was suffered, however the homeowners feel very violated. Police were called, but it would seem the thieves wore gloves, so no finger prints were lifted. Foot prints in the snow were matched to some in the house. Unfortunately the victims of this crime did not have an alarm system.
As a further note, there has been a lot of activity at the top of Crestridge Terrace, a dead end street facing Artist View, police are called whenever cars are seen parked at the end of that street. In the past there has been a sexual assault on a young girl at that location and many drug transactions have also taken place up there. People loiter there, drink and do drugs in that location. Police have also wakened individuals who have been parked there overnight, as they did not have sufficient funds to get a hotel room. Garbage is regularly dumped there and people have been seen defecating there in broad daylight. Not far from this location a vehicle was stolen. Many car prowlings have also been reported.
Residents are asked to be aware of suspicious individuals in the community and report any suspicious activity or individuals IMMEDIATELY to the police. Get a description of the person, or vehicle, take a license number and make, model and colour if you can.
All Crestmont residents are urged to be on alert to keep our community safe for everybody.
