FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John RCMP are reminding area residents to make sure their vehicles are secure after seeing an increase in vehicle thefts during the recent cold spell.

In a release, Sgt. Dave Tyreman with the local RCMP detachment said that residents have been leaving their vehicles running with the keys in the ignition and their doors unlocked, making it easy for the vehicle to be stolen.

The RCMP are asking residents that need to leave their vehicles idling due to the cold weather, to either use their remote start or always carry an extra set of keys in order to properly secure the vehicle.

Sgt. Tyreman added that failing to properly secure a motor vehicle could result in an $81 fine for having an unsecured Motor Vehicle.
