String of suspicious activity in Leduc County prompts RCMP investigation

Leduc RCMP and Thorsby Breton RCMP are investigation a rash of suspicious activities in the County of Leduc including theft from motor vehicles and theft of vehicles. Police are seeking assistance to help identify suspects involved.

RCMP responded to multiple reports of suspicious activity in Leduc County south and southwest off Calmar between the evening hours of Jan. 2, and the morning of Jan. 3, after receiving information of unknown suspects driving onto private property and stealing vehicles.

Two vehicles were stolen from the property and it is believed that at least one of the stolen vehicles was left unlocked with keys inside. The known stolen vehicles have since been recovered along with a third vehicle stolen out of Edmonton, Alta.

The investigation is ongoing and RCMP are requesting residents to report any criminal or suspicious activity as soon as it happens as it helps them know where to patrol and when.

Thorsby Breton and Leduc RCMP want to remind residents of some tips to keep their vehicles safe:

• If possible, look into command start options as a means to warm your vehicle

• Steering wheel locking devices are effective options that can help mitigate theft

• When starting your car, or allowing the engine to warm up prior to driving, ensure that you are in the vehicle

• Never leave valuable items like purses, wallets, keys or change in an unoccupied vehicle

• Always place keys to vehicles in a safe place, out of plain sight and in a secure location

• Lock vehicle doors all the time, even if you are parked in your driveway or garage at home

• Never leave your vehicle unattended if it is running or the keys are in it
