A rash of thefts in Miral Heights has police warning all residents to lock their car doors and remove all valuables.

“Thieves are active in the area,” says Sgt. Darren Oelke from the Greater Trail RCMP, following three reports of items stolen from vehicles over the weekend. “Simply locking your vehicle will deter the vast majority of this type of theft.”

Late Friday night or early Saturday morning, one person or more, entered unlocked vehicles parked in the subdivision, taking change and items of value.

Police believe more vehicles were involved than were reported.

“Just before midnight on Friday, an observant resident in Warfield noticed three males get out of a pick up truck in her neighbourhood,” explained Oelke. “They appear to be wearing headlamps and ventured into the neighbours yard.”

The trio quickly departed after the resident yelled at them.

“Thieves are looking for a quick and easy way to make money,” Oelke said. “And unlocked vehicles are an easy target.”

Remove all items of value from your vehicle, he reiterated. “And keep it locked.”
