The Timmins Police Service continues to ask the public to help identify thieves all around the city of Timmins. These thieves are going into vehicles, garages and sheds during the night stealing cash, electronic devices, bicycles and other valuable property .

We can not stress enough the need for everyone to lock their vehicles, garages and sheds when you’re not in them. And remove or hide any valuable belongings . These individuals have no respect for you or your belongings so the best defence is a good offence. Remove all temptation.

Many of you have video surveillance around your homes. That kind of footage is very helpful to police in solving these types of thefts and can be submitted to Crime Stoppers by using the website or the P3 app.

Together we can prevent  thefts in our neighbourhoods.

If you see this occurring, or catch it on your video surveillance call police.  Or call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, use the internet at or download the P3 app.

Your information and video clips could earn you up to $2,000 in cash.  You will remain anonymous and will not have to testify in court.

Help police keep our communities safe.  Call Crime Stoppers.
