A report was filed with Security of persons taking photos of a home at Gate 3 claiming to be with South Whatcom Fire Authority.
SWFA’s Fire Chief Dave Ralston was contacted by SVCA Safety, Security and Operations on this matter. Chief Ralston stated “I’m not aware of anyone that has been asked to take any pictures of homes representing the fire department.”
The person taking the photos was driving a black newer model Jeep Cherokee.
This suspicious activity has been shared with the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office, who are now investigating the incident. The Sheriff’s Office and SVCA would like to remind residents that if you see suspicious activity of any kind, please report it. If you can get a photo of the people or vehicle (especially the license plate) that can be very helpful, but do so only if your safety is ensured.
