Criminals in the Comox Valley have been targeting storage units at condominium buildings, typically located inside the parking garage.

The Comox Valley RCMP has noted a spike in thefts from storage units. Thieves have been breaking into the building, typically through the parking garage, and then forcing their way into the personal storage lockers of building residents.

On average, there have been 15 storage lockers broken into per condo building said Cst. Monika Terragni, Comox Valley RCMP Media Relations Officer. This has proven to be a lucrative crime for local thieves since they get access to so many units in one place she added.

The Comox Valley RCMP Street Crimes Unit and the Integrated Forensic Identification Section are engaged in the investigations and working to identify the suspect(s). There are a few things that residents can do to reduce these thefts:
