Vehicle Thefts

Saskatoon Police would like to remind motorists to keep a close eye on their vehicles when leaving their vehicles running in cold winter temperatures.

Police have received numerous stolen vehicle reports where the operator started the vehicle to warm it up, and left the keys inside with the doors unlocked. The complainant would return to the vehicle location to find it stolen.

If you need to start your car during the colder temperatures remember to lock the doors, keep a spare key with you, and either sit it the vehicle or keep it in view to prevent this crime of opportunity from occurring.
