Halifax District RCMP is reminding the public to lock their vehicles in the wake of several automobile break-ins this weekend.
Police responded to numerous thefts from motor vehicles yesterday, most occurring in the areas of Allenby Dr. and Piccadilly Close in Stillwater Lake and Riverside Dr. and Pinehill Dr. in Lower Sackville.
Most of the break-ins occurred on Saturday night and in many cases suspects stole small electronic devices, registration permits, insurance papers, wallets, spare keys and cash.
“Citizens should lock their vehicles when left unattended and ensure there are no valuables left in their automobiles,” said Cpl. Jennifer Clarke, Nova Scotia RCMP. “This is a preventable crime.”
All incidents remain under investigation.
