The Regina Police Service is advising drivers to lock the doors and remove the key when they are away from their vehicles. This includes leaving a spare set of keys in the vehicle as well.
We have had 5 reported incidents in the past 5 days of vehicles left running and unlocked and subsequently being stolen. Thieves, car thieves in particular, will go for an easy target. By leaving the vehicle running with the keys in it or even a spare set of keys in the vehicle, you are creating a big target on your car.
Fortunately we have a great community who notified us about suspicious vehicles/persons and, along with our officers on the lookout, we were able to recover 4 vehicles.
