Terrace RCMP and Auxiliary RCMP members will be checking on parked cars throughout Terrace and Thornhill.
According to the Terrace RCMP, there were over 120 thefts from vehicles reported last year, with many of those vehicles left unlocked.
The RCMP say two simple steps can help prevent these crimes of opportunity.
First is to make sure your vehicle is locked, and second is don’t leave valuable items in plain view.
Constable Angela Rabut of the Terrace RCMP says the cost to repair a vehicle is often much more than the value of the stolen item, especially after factoring in the deductible and increased premiums.
