Local police have responded to a number of residential and business break-and-enters in the last few weeks.
R.C.M.P. Constable Rob Gardner says it’s important to make your house looked lived in if you’re out of the area for a long period of time.
Gardner suggests investing in a timer for your lights. He says if people see lights going on and off on a regular basis, it will give the illusion that you’re home, even if you’re away.
