After car break-ins on 80th Avenue in Grand Forks and behind the Kool Treat at Christina Lake, RCMP reiterate that people lock car doors.

Grand Forks RCMP are once again reminding residents to lock their car doors.

Police have made many reminders over the past year, as there has been car thefts reported – many involving unlocked cars, such as the following.

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.
