Police remind residents to lock it or risk losing it

The Orangeville Police Service is reminding residents to lock vehicles and out-buildings when not in use to avoid being a victim of theft.

Warmer weather traditionally shows an increase in property crimes. Such crimes can often be avoided by ensuring that valuables are removed for vehicles and that doors are locked when not in use. In addition to vehicles, it is good practice to lock back-yard sheds and garages.

“These crimes of opportunity are avoidable by simply removing valuables and locking doors when not in use” explained Chief Wayne Kalinski.

Residents are also encouraged to be vigilant for suspicious people and vehicles in their neighborhoods. If you witness any suspicious activity, please call police.

The Orangeville Police Service wishes to thank residents for their support in helping to keep our community safe!

Anyone having information regarding these types of crimes is encouraged to call the Orangeville Police Service at 519-941-2522 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.crimestopperssdm.com.
