Langford man faces theft charges

Higher than usual theft reports lead to investigation and arrest

Robert J. Iverson faces two counts of theft after being arrested Nov. 8. The West Shore RCMP Street Crime Unit arrested the Langford 34-year-old after police began investigating a higher than usual number of theft from cars. There were 142 reports this year between Oct. 1 and Nov. 8, according to police. There were 50 over the same period last year.

Iverson is scheduled to appear in court Nov. 21.

“We wish to remind the public to lock their vehicles and to clear the vehicle of all valuables,” said Acting Sgt. Kathy Rochlitz. “Criminals will break into a vehicle for spare change, please take time to remove the temptation.”

RCMP continue to investigate the high number of theft from car.
