The Boston Bar RCMP are advising the public of an increase in vehicle break-ins and thefts of catalytic converters along the Trans Canada Highway between Yale and Boston Bar.

As the weather is warming up, we’ve noticed a growing number of visitors exploring Alexandra Bridge Provincial Park and our scenic hiking trails in the Canyon, noted Constable Kristi Strauss of the Boston Bar RCMP. As a reminder, when parking your vehicle, opt for well-lit areas or those with lots of people, and ensure all valuables are removed from your vehicle.

Here are a few tips you can follow to prevent theft of your catalytic converter:

If you witness or hear any suspicious activity around parked vehicles or in parking lots, please report it to the Boston Bar RCMP non-emergency line at 604-867-9333. If the suspicious activity is currently in progress call 9-1-1 for immediate assistance.
