Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD November 1873 Theft made easier by lack of concern By DAVID B. BLY Herald Staff Writer Theft is too often made easier by people's apparent lack of concern about their own says Insp. Glen head of the city police investigation division. And recovery of stolen property is made difficult because people do not record serial numbers or other iden- tification of their possessions One of the easiest targets lor thieves is the unlocked car. the inspector says. Too many while just dump their packages on the back seat in full view of passers-by. Even a car that is locked can be a likely target for thief if he can see what he wants. It only takes a few seconds to smash a window and open a door Lock your valuables in the trunk if you must carry them in your car. advises Insp. Michelson Poll response tremendous Lethbridge MP Ken Hurlburt says about 20 per ceni of the questionnaires he mailed out to the riding last month have been returned. Mr Hurlburt termed the response He said counting would probably be cut off another and a final tabulation of the poll's results made then. The usual rate of response to MPs' surveys has been from eight per cent to 15 per he said Mr Hurlburt also said he had gotten some reaction to his proposed method of settl- ing strikes received one nasty letter from a he said. also received three or four phone calls and letters from people on the executives of their local and they said they thought it was about time we came up with a new draft better than what we have With all the experience in all parties in he some improvement to current bargaining procedure should be possible.

Yet few people bother to mark their stereos and even fewer bother to put a mark on their tapes. Shotguns and rifles are openly displayed on gun racks in pick-up showing the potential thief exactly what he'll be getting for his efforts. put their guns in their vehicles at the beginning of the season and keep them there until the season Insp. Michelson said. like other should be kept out of sight. The inspec- tor advised that they not be carried in a car except on hunting trips. Clothes on back-seat racks are becoming increasingly popular with car thieves as he pointed out.

And too often stolen goods that are recovered cannot be returned to the owners because of lack of iden- tification. The inspector advises that portable items of value be marked with a social in- surance driver's license number of some other personal identification mark. Then a record of the items marked should be and this record stored with other valuable papers. people don't even know if anything is stolen when there's been a break- said Insp. they don't have a record of what they The Lethbridge police can provide a printed form for record-keeping.

A service provided by the organization likely goes un- noticed until someone breaks a leg or sprains an arm or is otherwise incapacitated for a time. Julia who has worked with the Red Cross loan service for the past three years admits the service is not the most publicized of Red Cross but behind the scenes she and other Red Cross volunteers dispense wheel monkey air and even portable bed pans for free for two months.
