(ATIKOKAN, ON) – On December 5, 2015, officer of the Rainy River District Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) investigated an attempted theft from several vehicles in the area of Birch Rd and Spruce Rd in Atikokan.  During the investigation the officers learned that all of the vehicles that had been rummaged through were left unlocked and in some cases the keys were in the vehicles.  The OPP reminds members of the public that it is important to lock your vehicles when they are unattended. It is also a best practice to ensure that valuables and other personal items are properly secured out of sight.
