Winter is here with a vengeance. ‘Tis the season to warm up your vehicles before driving away, but please don’t leave them unattended and unlocked while warming up, or with your keys in the ignition. A warm car is a nice sight in the morning; an empty space, where your car used to be, is not.
Every year we see many vehicles stolen with while the vehicle was warming, some with keys inside and while the vehicle was unlocked and unattended.
The Regina Police Service is encouraging citizens to lock their vehicles when not in use. Don’t leave vehicles unlocked or with keys left in them. Take your garage door openers into the house with you; don’t leave them in your vehicle, especially if it’s left unlocked. Keep all valuables and spare change out of sight, so as not to encourage possible thefts.
We encourage everyone to not leave a running vehicle unattended. The Holiday Season is a time for giving but don’t GIVE your vehicle away; TAKE your keys. As always, please report suspicious activity to police by calling 306-777-6500. If you see a crime in progress, call 9-1-1.
