Three thefts from vehicles in the same day prompt Port Hardy RCMP to remind residents to lock up vehicles.
During the morning hours of February 28, 2022, three unlocked vehicles in the area of Highland Dr had valuables stolen from them.
"Port Hardy sees a relatively low number of theft from vehicles, which can lead to a false sense of security. Theft from vehicles, are primarily crimes of opportunity. Simple steps can reduce the chances of a person falling victim to having property stolen," says Constable Jamie Pearson. Constable Pearson suggests the following steps to protect your belongings:
• Always lock your vehicles;
• Remove all valuables;
• Never leave a wallet unattended in a vehicle; and
• Report suspicious activity.
Port Hardy RCMP want to hear from people even when property is not stolen from vehicles. "Knowing when vehicles are targeted can help us focus our enforcement efforts," says Constable Pearson.
Port Hardy RCMP requests anyone who might not have reported a theft from their vehicle or anyone with information or witnessed the recent thefts to call the Port Hardy RCMP at 250-949-6335 to make a report.
