Police are investigating several thefts from vehicles

Police are investigating several thefts from vehicles in the eastern region of Dartmouth.

In the past two weeks, police have received multiple reports of thefts from vehicles in the Keystone, and Montebello neighborhoods of Dartmouth.

We would like to remind the public not to leave valuables in vehicles while they are unattended.

These thefts are generally crimes of opportunity, with the sight of items being a temptation for would-be thieves. Police recommend that citizens remove all items from their vehicles. If it’s absolutely necessary to leave items in your vehicle, they should be locked in the trunk out of plain view before arriving at your destination.

We encourage anyone who thinks they have had property stolen from their vehicle to call and report it to police. Anyone observing suspicious activity in or around parked vehicles should report it to police immediately at 490-5020. Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca.
