Grandview Dealing with String of Break-Ins

Grandview recently has suffered a series of break-ins over the past couple of weeks, with damage being done to local businesses and theft from homes in the community.
 Residents feel a lack of police presence has a huge impact on the series of events
 
Grandview Mayor Lyle Morran talks about how it has impacted the community.
 
"I think it has made everybody very uneasy and worried about their safety, especially because there has been some home invasions along with it. Most of out businesses in town have been broken into, and I think it just shows that we need more of a police presence. In this time of talk of amalgamations and everything, and closing, this is just one more reason that these offices should be kept open, there should be more of a police presence in the area."
 
Dauphin RCMP Sergeant Nolan Suss says they are continuing to investigate the matter.
 
"Random patrols have been shown to be of little value. We're doing directed patrols and investigation, so we're not just driving around, because that doesn't do much good. We are updating some checks, and following up with persons of interest, and doing our investigation."

The latest break in occurred at HL & K Enterprises.
