On July 24, police received a report that sometime over the evening, a vehicle had been entered on 80th Avenue in Grand Forks. There was loose change taken but more importantly a passport – Cpl. Richard Lanz said it appeared the vehicle had been unlocked at the time.

That same day, a similar incident was reported at Christina Lake at 2 p.m.

“An unlocked vehicle had been entered while it was parked behind the (Kool Treat) at Christina Lake and stolen from the vehicle were a cellphone and pink wallet containing numerous cards,” according to Lanz.
