District employee thanked

Thanks offered to police and municipal worker who locked up car

Editor, The Record:

I park my car at the West Coast Express parking lot every week day. A couple of weeks ago, two not-so-gentlemen broke into the car. A passerby saw what was happening and called the RCMP. I want to thank the RCMP who responded immediately to the call and stopped the two in the middle of ransacking and potentially stealing my vehicle.

I will always be especially grateful to the driver of the Mission street sweeping unit who didn’t just call the RCMP when he saw men going through the inside of my vehicle, but also stopped to put back into my car everything the thieves had tossed onto the pavement. He also took the time to relock my vehicle. As I work in Vancouver, it was a great relief to know that all would be safe and intact until I got back to Mission that evening.

To everyone who helped, thank you so very much.
