Pincher Creek RCMP are warning drivers to lock their vehicles and take their keys with them, following a rash of vehicle thefts in the community.

“It’s been going on for a week now,” said Sgt. Ryan Hodge on Wednesday morning.

“We have an individual that’s responsible for stealing up to half a dozen vehicles. Just a matter of trying to catch up to him.”

“What we’re finding is there are keys left in the vehicle making them an easy target.”

RCMP urge anyone who sees something suspicious, like a vehicle break-in, to call 911 immediately.
