The Three Hills RCMP would like to remind everyone to remember to lock up their belongings and to not leave keys in their vehicles. During the harvest, please try to make an effort to remove keys from trucks in the fields to deter vehicle theft. While in town, leaving your vehicle running at the store while you shop is just inviting thieves to drive away with it. Take the time to secure your vehicles. With today’s technology, it is increasing difficult to steal a motor vehicle without the keys.
