A pair of Telus hats and jackets have been stolen and culprits may be using them to gain entry into businesses and homes by posing as company employees, Prince George RCMP is warning.
"Legitimate Telus employees all carry company issued photo identification and will provide it when asked," Cpl. Craig Douglass said.
"If persons in Telus uniforms are not able to provide their photo identification they should not be allowed onto the property."
The theft, which occurred on Friday, is among the 33 break and enters reported over the last week as police continue to notice a spike in that type of crime. Reports from Isle Pierre, Nukko Lake, Giscome and Shelley are included in the numbers.
"The remainder of these crimes have been spread throughout the city and are occurring at all hours of the day," Douglass said.
Homeowners are advised to make sure their homes are secure before going out and to report suspicious activity.
"In a sense, be a nosey neighbour," Douglass said. "If it doesn't look right, it probably isn't."
