Following are a couple of valuable tips that may prevent residents from becoming a victim of crime:

– never leave vehicles unlocked while unattended;

– never leave keys in the vehicle;

– always park in a well-lit area;

– never leave valuable objects in plain view (remove them or secure them in the trunk); and

– protect vehicles from theft; always roll up windows.

The Wellington County OPP officials continue to remind all vehicle owners to “lock it or lose it.”
