Lock it or Lose it

 

Central Saanich Police Service is reminding our E-Alert community to lock your cars and remove any valuables.

Late Monday afternoon a local resident parked her car in a shopping area in the Saanichton Village.    The woman had left her vehicle for a short time, however, when she returned she determined that her car had been entered and her backpack was missing.    Unfortunately,  there was also a black MEC raincoat, two cellular telephones and some personal items inside the backpack.

The stolen property is still outstanding.

Central Saanich Police Service is offering some tips on preventing theft from auto:

  1. Remove all valuables from your car,
  2. Lock your car,
  3. Take your garage door opener with you or secure it out of sight.  Some criminals will take your garage door opener and documents ( i.e. insurance papers) with your address on it in efforts to gain access to your home later,
  4. Park in well lit areas with a lot of  pedestrian traffic,
  5. Report all suspicious activity to police.
