Police actions appreciated

Mission RCMP's quick response to an attempted break in was appreciated

Editor, The Record:

Many thanks to the Mission RCMP for their speed, efficiency, and professionalism in responding to an attempted break and enter at my rental house on James Street recently.

The tenant and victim of this callous act was about to leave for a day at the office, when a criminal attempted to break into the house through a basement window. Understandably terrified, she screamed at the perpetrator, and  called 911. The villain fled the scene.

In spite of the best efforts of the RCMP, his identity has yet to be determined. Sadly, the innocent victim has been left largely traumatized by the experience. The house, with its proximity to the downtown core and all that entails, has since been fortified with security bars and upgraded locks.
