Bella Coola Police Report – June 2013 - RCMP remind public to secure valuables

Bryan Everett O'Reilly is wanted by Bella Coola RCMP.

On 2013-05-23 Bella Coola RCMP received a report of a theft from vehicle in the 4 mile Subdivision. The following day another report of a theft from vehicle was received. On both incidents the thief or thieves stole money which was left in the vehicle. Neither vehicle was locked at the time of the theft and the Bella Coola RCMP are reminding everyone that no one is immune to crime and to make sure you lock vehicle doors.

Bella Coola RCMP is seeking the assistance of the public to locate Bryan Everett O’REILLY, age 25. O’REILLY is wanted on multiple arrest warrants from Bella Coola. The current charges are: Escape Lawful Custody in Bella Coola from December of 2012, Assault Causing Bodily Harm from January of 2013, Breach conditions of Probation.

O’REILLY is described as Native, 6’1″, 190 lbs, with brown hair and brown eyes. If you have information regarding any of these incidents, please call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 or the Bella Coola RCMP at 250 799-5363.  Crime stoppers also subscribes to web tips at www.bccrimestoppers.com

During the past 2 weeks there has been a marked increase in the number of reports of thefts from vehicles and businesses. The common denominator in all of these incidents is that the vehicles or premises were not locked or valuables properly secured. These thefts were crimes of opportunity, the property was easily observed and no damage was done to take it.

This is a good time to take a look at your home, business and vehicles security practices to ensure you are not the victim of a preventable theft. Lock doors and secure valuables out of view, take control of the number of keys for locks and if necessary replace locks or have them re-keyed if you don’t know how many copies are in distribution. If you have concerns or would like advice on better securing your property, please contact the Bella Coola RCMP Detachment to discuss alternatives.
