Lock It or Lose It Reminder

Kawartha Lakes Police are reminding area residents to take a few extra seconds and make sure that you have locked your vehicle.

Over the past week, Police have seen an increase in reported thefts from unlocked vehicles. Most recently, on June 30th, 2017 a William Street South resident reported a wallet missing, which contained personal identifications and credit cards. The credit card was used a short time after being taken at an Angeline Street North business.

Thefts from unlocked vehicles are crimes of opportunity that can be prevented by locking your vehicle and not leaving personal items such as wallets, cell phones, GPS ‘s  and laptops in plain view in your vehicle.


Hole Drilled In Gas Tank

On Friday, June 30th, 2017 Kawartha Lakes Police were contacted by the owner of a 2016 Ford F-150 pick – up truck after it was discovered a hole had been drilled in the gas tank.

The owner of the vehicle reported that they left the vehicle parked overnight in a Highway 35 south commuter parking lot, which is located near Double Tree Road. When they returned to the vehicle on June 30th, 2017 they detected a strong odour of gasoline around the truck.
