Residents encouraged to ensure doors are locked at your residence and vehicles when not at home or going to sleep. Summer weather tends to bring out more opportunistic criminals looking for easy targets. Your Cranbrook RCMP are encouraging citizens to call if they notice suspicious activity, in particular persons who are prowling on yours or your neighbours’ properties.
