On November 9 at 5:35am, a Rainbow Falls Way resident awoke and found a male going through their vehicle parked in the driveway.  The suspect fled in a white SUV that was determined to be stolen.  The suspect and stolen vehicle were followed into Calgary and then lost.  The suspect was unable to steal anything as the homeowner interrupted the crime. Unfortunately, this suspect and vehicle were also captured on home security cameras committing theft from another Rainbow Falls Way resident earlier that morning at approx. 5:25am.

On November 10 at approx. 12:54am, a Cove Road resident reported to the Chestermere RCMP that a suspicious male was seen trying to exchange licence plates on a vehicle. The suspect was attempting to remove the plate from the resident’s parked vehicle.  Due to the use of a Security Screw from the local RCMP program, the male was not able to remove the licence plate and fled the area.  Police patrols in the area were unsuccessful in locating the suspect and or their vehicle.

On November 11 at approx. 4:10pm, and November 14 at approx. 3:30pm, an unknown suspect smashed the windows of vehicles parked near the Chestermere off leash Dog Park and The Chestermere Public Library to steal valuables.  These thefts are still under investigation. 

The Chestermere RCMP would like to remind residents not to leave valuables in plain sight when they leave their vehicles unattended.  From these reported crimes it is obvious it is not about the location of the vehicle, it is about what is visible and attractive to a thief.  

“Preventing crime is always the best approach," said RCMP Sgt. Stubbs.  "The more knowledge and information we give our residents to help them keep their belongings and valuables safe, the safer we can keep everyone.” 

If you have an outdoor security camera, please register with the Chestermere CAPTURE program at www.chestermerecapture.ca. The CAPTURE program is a voluntary security camera location registry. If a crime occurs, Chestermere RCMP can consult the list of cameras and see if any are registered in the area that the crime took place. The camera owners will then be asked to share their footage from a specific time and date to an external storage device for the RCMP to review and use as a tool to help solve crimes in our area.
