Halton Police would like to remind the public to lock their vehicles parked in the driveway and more importantly, to hide and secure valuables such as electronics from sight.
Overnight, between June 30 and July 1, 2015, several vehicle entries occurred in the Glen Abbey area in the Town of Oakville.
Thieves were checking for unlocked car doors looking for cash, GPS devices and other electronics. Dash mounted GPS devices left in plain view resulted in vehicle windows being smashed to gain entry.
As Halton Police continue to investigate the vehicle entries, the public is reminded to make extra efforts to keep valuables safe and hidden from sight. If possible, take any valuable electronics into the home at night so not to attract wandering thieves.
