Port Hardy RCMP have identified and apprehended three youths believed responsible for a series of home and auto break-ins between Jan. 1 and 4 in the Port Hardy area.

The RCMP said “numerous” homes and vehicles were broken into at night, with a variety of items being stolen.

The investigation is ongoing and charges are being forwarded for a number of property-related offences.

As many of the homes and vehicles that were victimized were not locked, the Port Hardy RCMP would like to remind everyone to please take the time to ensure your residences and vehicles are properly secured.

“Locking your doors and securing your windows makes your house or vehicle a far less attractive target for thieves,” said staff sergeant Gord Brownridge of the Port Hardy detachment. “Further, do not leave any items inside your vehicle when unattended, regardless of how low the value of those items may be.”
