Over the weekend, Guelph police reported thefts from 8 vehicles, from one end of the city to the other.
Personal papers, property and electronics were stolen.
This is a huge on-going problem.
Last year, city police report that 7 vehicles were stolen after they’d been left running in Guelph.
Already this year, 4 have been taken that way.
28 more were stolen, when the thieves found or stole the keys. Add 3 more to that list this year.
Police say all of this type of crime is easy to avoid.
Lock your car, take the keys with you and keep valuable out of sight.
Police recovered a pick-up truck that was stolen last Monday, after a man left the key in it, while he ran into a business on college avenue.
