According to RCMP, they have responded to approximately 12 complaints within an eight hour period.

Most of the vehicles entered had been left unlocked by the owners and a number of small items were reported missing – flashlights, small amounts of change, in one case, a wallet with identification. The individual’s debit card was used twice early this morning in town.
