A number of residents in Brockville’s north end woke up yesterday morning to discover their vehicles had been entered overnight. Brockville Police received several reports from car owners who had entered their vehicles Thursday to find someone had been in their car and rummaged through its contents looking for money and valuables to take.
Brockville Police are reminding car owners to lock their vehicles while leaving them unattended and where possible to park in well lit areas. Residents are asked to report suspicious activity around vehicles.
