Throughout Grand Forks in the last two to three weeks, there have been approximately 15 to 20 reports of early-morning thefts of bicycles, generators and things of that nature from peoples’ properties.

Grand Forks RCMP’s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison said the thefts generally don’t involve break-ins and they are usually to items that are left outside.

“Police do have a suspect in the matter and most of these occurrences are happening between 3 and 4 a.m. We currently suspect that a Chevy pickup, grey and blue, two-toned in colour, is possibly involved and we’re asking the public’s support. If they see suspicious persons or vehicles out in the early-mornings that appear to be scoping out other people’s property or houses, please give us a call immediately and we’ll attend,” he said.

Harrison also recommended people put away or lock up items on their properties.
