Three vehicles stolen in less than two hours

Using a bait car and other resources, RCMP took aim at the problem of theft of and from vehicles in Maple Ridge.

There was a rash of car thefts in Alberta:

The St. Albert RCMP is warning vehicle owners to lock idling vehicles after three vehicles were stolen within an hour and a half.

A thief or thieves attempted to steal a fourth vehicle but were unsuccessful.

All of the vehicles were left unlocked and idling while they were warming up.

On Tuesday at around 8 a.m. an idling and unlocked 2006 grey Mazda car was stolen from the Ridgewood Terrace area of St. Albert. The vehicle was recovered the same day.
