Fort Saskatchewan was hit with a major crime spree.
Over the past weekend, police responded to 14 thefts from vehicles.
Items including cash, wallets, purses, garage door openers, sunglasses, birth certificates, license plates and more were stolen.
“The detachment has multiple crime reduction strategies that the members are undertaking, but I also need to stress that the public needs to lock their doors and not leave anything in their vehicles that is worth stealing," said Fort Saskatchewan RCMP Staff Sergeant Michael McCauley. "That is the most critical crime prevention technique that exists for this crime type."
McCauley said is a significant increase compared to what is normally seen within our community.
The Fort Saskatchewan RCMP are working with other departments to identify the suspects.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP at 780-997-7900 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
