Police reminding residents to lock their vehicles after rash of thefts

Kawartha Lakes Police are warning Lindsay residents to lock their vehicles after fourteen thefts were reported to them on Wednesday. Lock it or Lose it they say.

It all began early Wednesday morning when police started to receive calls from Cook Street and McGibbon Boulevard area regarding vehicles that had been entered. In total fourteen reports were made to police; most reporting missing loose change or vehicle documents.

In two incidents an open garage was also entered where a blue Nordic 18-speed mountain bike and beer were taken. There were also reports of a missing GPS and Gym Bag with running shoes.

Police remind vehicle owners/passengers to be vigilant about locking their vehicles and keeping valuable items out of sight as the warmer weather approaches as open vehicles offer would-be criminals an open invitation to steal not only property but your identity, which gives criminals the opportunity to further victimize individuals.
