High River RCMP have been receiving multiple complaints of car prowlings and theft from vehicles happening in the Montrose area.

Back on Sunday, June 24, police say suspects took items from the vehicles, and in one case, used the garage door opener left inside one vehicle to gain access to the garage and another vehicle kept inside.

It wasn't very difficult either as all the vehicles involved had been left unlocked.

High River RCMP Constable Jill Mill says it's something that could have been easily avoided.

"It's a very common occurance for unlocked vehicles to attract thieves. A vehicle with an unlocked door or open window is an easy target".

Mill says "Thefts from vehicles are easily prevented by locking your doors, rolling up windows, hiding valuables, and taking keys out of the vehicles."

Mounties ask if you recognize the suspects, or have information on the prowlings, to contact High River RCMP at 403-652-2357.

If you want to remain anonymous, you can also contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), by internet at www.tipsubmit.com.
