Halton Regional Police are reminding the public to lock their vehicles parked in the driveway as there is a recent increase in vehicle entries in areas throughout the town of Oakville.
The Joshua Creek, Palermo and West communities have been targeted by thieves and the suspects are primarily looking for GPS units, high end sunglasses and loose change.Investigators are requesting that if a member of the public confronts any youth late at night going through vehicles, or observes youths walking around carrying backpacks in the early morning hours to contact police immediately.
Police are also encouraging people to be vigilant about locking their vehicles at all times and not to leave expensive items in plain view. (See attached crime prevention flyer)
