Three Hill Detachment Commander Sgt. Jamie Day of the Three Hills RCMP wants to remind the public to always lock your vehicle and take your keys with you, even if you’re only leaving it for a moment. An unlocked vehicle with the keys inside is an open invitation for theft, which can happen in less than 20 seconds. Having your vehicle stolen is not only an inconvenience, it can be dangerous. Many stolen vehicles are driven dangerously, creating a safety risk for everyone on the road. They are often used in other serious crimes. You depend on your vehicle to get around, so don’t make it easy for someone to steal it. Keep it locked. Keep your keys with you.
