Thieves prey on crime of opportunities, says Sgt. Krista VROLYK, media spokesperson for the Chilliwack RCMP. A vehicle left running with keys in the ignition is an easy target. This type of crime can easily be prevented. Please remember to lock your doors, remove valuables from plain view and use an anti-theft device.
