Three Vehicles Reported Stolen Locally In Past 24 Hours, One Man Charged

KAWARTHA LAKES-Over the past 24 hours the City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service, received two reports of stolen vehicles and recovered, a third stolen vehicle from Millbrook.

During the same period of time police received multiple reports of thefts from vehicles. One of the Lindsay vehicles, was recovered by the Peterborough Police Service and the second was located in the parking lot of a King Street business in Lindsay. One male is in custody and police are continuing to investigate.

The City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service reminds residents it only takes seconds for a thief to steal a vehicle left running while unoccupied. Leaving a car unattended with the keys inside could give a thief access to other keys on the ring or a garage door opener. Here are some other tips:

  • Refrain from leaving vehicles running and unattended.
  • Do not leave children or pets in a vehicle.
  • Do not leave a vehicle running, unattended, and with children inside it.
  • Do not leave garage door remote openers in open view inside vehicles.
  • Remove or conceal personal property such as purses, bags and electronics.
  • Close and lock windows and doors when leaving vehicles unattended.
  • Immediately report suspicious persons or activity in your neighbourhood.

City of Kawartha Lakes Police Service is asking anyone with information to contact police at 705.324.5252 or report it online through the online reporting system: https://kawarthalakespolice.com/services/online-crime-reporting/
