Youths break into numerous Warman vehicles

On Wednesday July 26th 2017, at approximately 2:00 am the Warman/Martensville RCMP received a call from a vigilant citizen in Warman reporting three males looking into and entering unlocked vehicles.  Officers responded and were able to locate and arrest three youth in relation to the matter.  The youth were found to have entered and stolen from numerous unlocked vehicles in the City. The matter continues to be under investigation.
The Warman/Martensville RCMP would like to thank members of the public for making the observation and promptly calling it in.  
The RCMP would also like to remind the public of the following, which are common themes when it comes to break-ins to vehicles and theft of vehicles. In the case of vehicle thefts, they are almost always left unlocked, with the keys accessible somewhere in the vehicle. Prevention of these types of crimes is simple:
  • Lock your doors
  • Remove your keys
  • Remove valuables from your vehicles and don’t have them visible
  • Park your car in a well-lit area
  • Call the police immediately if you see suspicious activity
