Since October 1, 19 thefts from vehicles have been reported across Halifax District RCMP area.

Thefts have been reported in Tantallon, Fall River, Fletchers Lake, Lower Sackville and Eastern Passage. The RCMP is advising residents to protect themselves from would-be thieves by removing valuables from their vehicles and locking their vehicle doors.

Of the 19 vehicles entered, 16 were unlocked. Sunglasses, cellphones, personal identification and money were stolen.

“Thieves look for vehicles that are easy to enter,” says Cpl. Dal Hutchinson, Halifax District RCMP. “By locking your vehicle’s doors and removing valuables, you make your vehicle less attractive to thieves.”

RCMP encourages the public to notify police immediately if you observe any suspicious activity in your neighborhood and to report any thefts from vehicles.
