Tillicum moviegoers warned to lock up

Moviegoers at Cineplex SilverCity Victoria are being warned of a rash of thefts from cars, and one stolen car, at the parking lot for the cinema at Tillicum Centre.

Over the course of one night, from about 8 to 11 p.m., typical moviegoing hours, two cars were broken into and one, a 1992 Nissan Centra, was stolen.

The other two vehicles broken into were a 1993 Nissan pickup and a 1995 Chevrolet Blazer, suggesting the criminals targeted older model vehicles, which can be easier to break into.

The stolen car was later recovered at a hotel on Craigflower Road. Forensic examiners are currently going over the car in search of evidence. No arrests have been made.

Police recommend moviegoers do not leave any valuables inside of vehicles and consider using anti-theft devices, particularly for vehicles older than 1995.
