Lock your doors: Police release footage of car prowling in SW Calgary (VIDEO)

Jun 14 2017, 11:46 pm

The Calgary Police Service has released video footage of a car prowler going around the cities southwest earlier this month in hope of finding the suspect.

CPS believe the suspect prowled through a parked car on Sunday, June 4, around 3:15 am. The car was in the 100 block of Everglade Circle SW, and a wallet containing multiple pieces of ID was stolen. Police believe the vehicle was locked at the time of the theft because the vehicle’s security alarm was triggered during the offence.

CPS says video surveillance footage approximately 10 minutes earlier, shows a man prowling through another vehicle parked in the 100 block of Everglade Circle SW. Nothing was taken during this incident, however the suspect was caught on CCTV and police believe the two incidents are related.

Police are reminding citizens to continue to be vigilant and:

  • Remove all valuables, including any garage door openers, from vehicles when parked.
  • Always keep all vehicles, doors, garages and windows locked.
  • Keep car keys in an unlikely place, not right beside your door for thieves to easily find.
  • Report any suspicious activity or people to police immediately by calling 403-266-1234 or 9-1-1 for a crime in progress.

Anyone with information about this incident or the identity of the suspect is asked to call the CPS non-emergency line at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be left anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers on 1-800-222-8477.
