The Community Policing Office (CPO) along with the RCMP Detachment is reminding residents to remove all valuables from vehicles.

“It seems to move around the city, so is not localized to one area,” wrote CPO Coordinator Marlene Jones.

In some cases, vehicle windows are being smashed for even a small amount of change or another item that the owner may not have realized was visible.

“We encourage people to take a moment to clean out your vehicle of any item that may not be required,” added Jones.

Some of the targeted items include shopping bags, tools, spare change, electronics, and briefcases.

“This is a problem in many communities, but we can make a difference if we remove all valuables from sight,” concluded Jones.
