Over the last week there were no reported crimes in the Half Moon Bay or Stonebridge districts. However there were crimes reported in the rest of Barrhaven.
- 8 reported Thefts from Vehicles
- 2 Break and Enters
- 2 Thefts
- 2 Assaults
- 1 Sexual Offense (Indecent call)
As you can see, Theft from Vehicle is a high risk crime in our communities and you must remain vigilant and make sure you lock your car doors and remove all valuables.
During the last week there were 6 Thefts reported in Barrhaven, 3 Thefts from Vehicles and 4 Assaults. None of these occurred in Half Moon Bay or Stonebridge areas.
The number of Assaults in Barrhaven seems to be a little higher than in the past so please don’t walk alone, especially after dark. I believe all of these occurrences have been reported after 7:00 PM.
CPO Speaker Series
“I love you.” Three simple words uttered online can sometimes mean the beginning of a painful journey for victims of romance fraud. This speaker series event will shed light on a growing problem-and the serious consequences it raises for those affected.
Romance fraud takes place when a scammer poses as someone looking for love on a dating site or social network using a fake profile. Scammers weave a false story, ask plenty of questions and quickly profess their love. Soon, they’re asking for money and the victims give away thousands of dollars before realizing the whole relationship is a scam.
