Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to the report of a stolen vehicle that occurred on Humber Trail in the Town of Caledon.
On Monday, January 24, 2022 at approximately 6:50 a.m. a resident started their vehicle to warm it up, leaving it in the driveway unattended. When the resident went to leave for work a short time later they found their vehicle was gone.
With the cold weather upon us, many Caledon residents will be tempted to start their cars in the morning to warm them up. Caledon OPP is urging residents not to leave their vehicles running and unattended. If you feel the need to warm your vehicle up, consider installing a keyless remote starter for your vehicle to help deter its theft.
Caledon OPP reminds local residents that theft is a crime of opportunity. Thieves often look for unattended or unsecured property to steal. Always secure your vehicle by removing car keys, locking all doors and windows, removing all valuables from plain view, and never leaving your car running and unattended.
If you have any information in relation to this incident, contact Caledon OPP detachment at (905) 584-2241 or toll-free at 1-888-310-1122.
