The Comox Valley RCMP are investigating another rash of thefts from coin operated laundry machines. Constable Rob Gardner says there have been five reported thefts since earlier this month. “It’s laundry machines in secure apartment buildings that have been targeted throughout the valley,” Gardner states. The Forensic Identification Section is assisting with the investigations. “We would like to remind residents in secure buildings to allow persons that you don’t know into the buildings.” Anyone with information is asked to call RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
