Police report spike in thefts from cars parked downtown

Ottawa police are reminding you to lock your car and remove all valuables when you park.

Officers have seen a spike in the number of thefts from vehicles in the downtown core over the past few weeks.

In most cases, police say it's happening in the afternoon and overnight hours and the items are left in plain sight.

For crime prevention tips, call your local Community Police Centre; they can also help you get a yellow sign for your car that reads "All Valuables Removed."
