Car Thefts - Lexus/Toyota
The OPS continue to see thefts of high-end Lexus/Toyota vehicles, particularly larger SUVs and 4Runners. Signal amplifiers are now being used. OPS recommends additional line of defense to protect your asset: consider keeping any vehicle with a proximity key fob inside a radio frequency shield device (RSF device). This will prevent the key fob’s signal from being amplified to the vehicle from inside the house protecting it from being driven away.

Residents are reminded to remove anything of value from their vehicle. Thieves typically look for an unlocked vehicle, and once they gain entry, they go through the entire car, including the trunk,” said Cst.Lemieux. “It isn’t enough to hide items in the console or under the car seats because the thieves are just that thorough.” In the event you notice someone acting suspicious around parked vehicles or if you see someone trying car doors – please call police and report it. Make the right call. “Even if your car is broken into and nothing is taken, it still needs to be reported to police."
In addition to cars, Homes, and backyard sheds are also targeted Be aware and ensure your home looks lived in and sheds and garages are locked; thieves take advantage of any opportunity to steal. Also, PLEASE report all incidents to police, even if nothing was stolen in the end or the car/shed was unlocked. Without your report, police cannot track patterns and assign resources to prevent future break ins.
