OPP remind public to “Lock It or Lose It” after recent thefts
Due to several recent complaints of thefts from unlocked vehicles, Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are asking the public to “Lock It or Lose It.”
Frontenac OPP have responded to a number of reports in Verona of unlocked vehicles that were entered and had items stolen.
OPP have provided some tips to help prevent thefts:
- Always roll up your vehicle’s windows, lock the doors and pocket the key.
- If you have a garage, use it and lock the door as well as your vehicle.
- Always park your vehicle in a well-lit area.
- Never leave valuable objects or packages in full view. Put them in the trunk.
- Never leave your vehicle unattended while it is running.
Be sure to take precautions to protect your vehicle and vehicle contents from theft.
