"Car shopping is a term used to describe thieves stealing from vehicles, often left unlocked. The simple precaution of locking your vehicle will help to deter this crime. Extra precaution needs to be taken during the holiday season. Ensure that gifts are stored out of sight as you holiday shop," says Cst Angela Rabut, Community Policing/Media Relations Terrace RCMP.
