The South Bruce OPP are asking you to do your part to help prevent property crime.
In just 2 months -- August 3rd to October 3rd -- 31 vehicles were taken in the South Bruce detachment area and 27 of the stolen vehicles had the keys left in the vehicle or readily accessible.
Theft is a crime of opportunity, and you can take away those opportunities by locking your vehicles and securing your valuables.
Of course, not all crimes are preventable by taking precautions but as the numbers show, it sure does help a lot!
Please continue to report suspicious vehicles and suspicious people as soon as possible so that an officer can investigate.
The South Bruce OPP is requesting anyone with information that can assist police to call 1-888-310-1122. Should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or submit a secure web-tip at www.cstip.ca, where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.
