Knock-knock who's there, seems to be the way some criminals are checking on your home.
The RCMP in Halifax says they've learned that several criminals are knocking on doors to see if anyone is home. In a news release, the police say the people will knock on the front door and if someone answers they ask if a certain person is home. Then they move onto another house. If no one answers, they break into the residence through the front door. After entering the home and taking valuables, they leave out the back of the residence.
If you see something suspicious, you are asked contact police. Try to get a good description of the person including height, weight, clothing and other details. Take a look to see if there is a strange car parked nearby. A license plate, make and model works best. Never take action in your own hands and always call police.
Police are asking anyone with information about this activity to contact any RCMP office, Halifax Regional Police, or Crime Stoppers anonymously anytime at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca.
