With three reports of thefts from vehicles in Armstrong Monday night, RCMP are warning fair-goers to be cautious of their valuables.

“With the return of the IPE to the Armstrong region with that comes all kinds of individuals,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. “With that comes opportunists who are preying on people who are coming to enjoy the fair.”

People are reminded to leave their valuables at home, or keep them out of sight by locking them in their trunks.

“It sometimes brings individuals who are less than honest,” said Molendyk.
