The Holyrood RCMP detachment advises people to park in well-lit areas and to ensure the vehicle is secure and valuables are out of sight. 

Anyone with information about the above incidents is asked to contact the RCMP at 229-3892, through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), online at nlcrimestoppers.com or through a free and secure mobile app found under P3 Tips in your preferred app store.
