Local RCMP and Rural Crime Watch are reminding residents to report any crime or suspicious activity no matter how small or insignificant they think it may be.
Grande Prairie District Rural Crime Watch Association president Wayne Davies says files need to be created.
“To get the fan-out on crime watch, to get the RCMP to just to have a file because when you phone in because when you phone in RCMP start the file and as they receive calls that’s how it adds up and pretty soon they have a case they can pursue.”
He says there have been a few recent incidents in the county.
“We just had a fan-out, a gentleman was out walking his dog and he noticed a car pull up and a guy jumped out and scoped him with a rifle, so it is scary stuff that.” Davies adds “We have a break in that I don’t think was reported to police.”
When contacted regarding the rifle incident, RCMP told the no one has filed a complaint and reiterate the importance of contacting RCMP.
