Officers issue alert

Vernon RCMP are, once again, reminding people to take valuables out of their cars.

Vernon RCMP are, once again, reminding people to take valuables out of their cars.

This comes following a rash of thefts from vehicles over the past few days.

At least six vehicles have either had their windows smashed or thieves helped themselves by opening an unlocked door.

Four of the thefts occurred in the 27th Avenue area west of downtown Monday morning.

Among the items taken were things like change, GPS devices, cell phones, one purse and an iPod.

Police are advising people to take all of their valuables out of their vehicles and, if out doing some last-minute Christmas shopping, keep the parcels “out of sight, out of mind,” such as storing them in a trunk.

Police also advise to take the valuables home and then return to do more shopping if you need to get more items.
