Grey County OPP urge the public not to leave their valuables in plain view inside their vehicle.
Leaving items such as purses, wallets, cameras, GPS, electronics, cash, etc. is a temptation for some to break into your vehicle to steal these items.
On July 10, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. Grey County OPP received a call from a Wardsville, Ontario resident reporting that while she was hiking someone had smashed her car window and stole her purse and a cell phone. The vehicle was parked on Colpoy’s Range Road in the Township of Georgian Bluffs.
Other vehicles that were parked in the area were not damaged. Although the victim’s vehicle was locked, leaving items of value in plain view made this a crime of opportunity.
