Crack down on car theft

The Kamloops RCMP want to remind residents that April is auto crime enforcement month.

As seen in the most recent theft from motor vehicles map for the week of March 29 to April 4, theft was up to 39 reported incidents for the week.

While downtown still remains a hotspot with 12 of the reports, areas such as Sun Rivers and Sahali are seeing more action as well.
