Dodges disappearing from driveways in Chilliwack

A total of 17 older model Dodge trucks in the north end of Chilliwack have been stolen since the beginning of February, say RCMP

RCMP can’t say why but there’s been a rash of thefts of older model Dodge trucks.

“Chilliwack has seen an increase in the theft of older model Dodge trucks primarily from the north area of town,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck.

A total of 17 older model Dodge trucks have been stolen since the beginning of February.

“Of most concern to police is that several of the vehicles have been stolen from residential driveways.”

They’re warning Dodge owners to take precautions.

“Its really hard to say why these vehicles are being specifically targeted right now,” said Const. Wolbeck. “Our crime analyst made us aware of the numbers and we knew we needed to act on it.”

Many of the vehicles have been recovered in the Chilliwack area but were badly damaged and no longer driveable.

“This comes at a very big expense to the vehicle owners,” she said.

Trucks targeted recently are from 1995 to 2001.

Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact Chilliwack RCMP at 604 792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
