Advisory - Theft From Autos

The Saskatoon Police Service is asking motorists to theft proof their vehicles.

In January there were 113 more incidents of theft from auto reported to the Saskatoon Police Service compared to the same month in 2007. Often valuables were left in plain view and were taken from vehicles after being spotted by thieves.

Motorists are reminded to hide valuables such as satellite radios, ipods, and bags by placing them under the seat or in the trunk of the vehicle; park in well lit, populated areas if possible, always lock doors and windows, and consider an alarm system.
