“These types of vehicles have typically always been a target for vehicle thieves, however, recently we’ve seen a significant increase. We’re hoping that by advising people who may own such a vehicle, they can take extra precautions when securing them” said Const. James Grandy, of the South Okanagan detachment.

Reports of 17 theft or attempted theft of Ford F-Series between January 28 to February 24 were reported in the South Okanagan.
