Catalytic converter thieves have been hard at work at Chilliwack Lake and Lindeman Lake recreation areas, according to Chilliwack RCMP.
The public is being asked to call in any suspicious activity of this sort to police after several thefts were reported from Lindeman and Chilliwack Lakes in recent weeks.
“Thieves are targeting unoccupied vehicles at these locations,” said Sgt. Krista Vrolyk, media spokesperson for the Chilliwack RCMP. “The thefts are occurring both during the day and overnight.”
The recent thefts are under investigation by the Chilliwack RCMP Property Crime section.
