Rash of Vehicle Thefts in Strathroy

Police in Strathroy-Caradoc say there’s been a wave of local vehicle thefts over a two week span.

Most of the six vehicles were taken from residential laneways and one was stolen while its owner was inside a variety store. Three have been recovered. Two were found abandoned outside the Strathroy area and a third was discovered burned out on a road south of Mt Brydges. A thief or thieves are taking vehicles in the evening hours.

Police are reminding car and pickup owners to lock their vehicles, even in their own driveways, and keep keys in a safe place.
