A vehicle itself was also reported stolen, although its owner admits it was left unlocked with the keys inside. Two houses were also broken into yesterday, which were both left unlocked as well.
FortSt. John RCMP Corporal Jodi Shelkie says all of the crimes occurred in one quadrant of the city, leaving police to believe someone was looking for easy targets.
“It was somebody out and about targeting an area,” she says. “People just need to lock up and not keep valuables in their vehicles.”
