Police Chief Wants Petty Crime Reduced In 2014

You may be planning to lose weight or even quit smoking in 2014, but what about locking your car every time you leave it? That's one new years resolution the Rothesay Regional Police Chief would be glad to see you make. 

Stephen McIntyre tells CHSJ News petty property crime and theft continues to plague the valley. He says people continue to keep things like purses, laptops, GPS devices and other valuable items in their vehicles. He says this year he wants to see people taking steps to help the police and themselves by removing anything of value in their vehicle, and making sure the doors are locked.

McIntyre says the department hopes they will see a reduction in those types of crimes this year.
