Lock it or lose it.

That's the message from the OPP in Sioux Lookout.

Police say there have been several reports in the south and western parts of the municipality of vehicles being rummaged through.

The OPP report there has been a noticeable increase in the area of Fanning Avenue to Aspen Drive and between Front Street and Prince Street.

Provincial Police are urging people to lock their vehicles and keep valuables out of sight.

The OPP say any video or images of these events in progress greatly assist officers to identify the suspects.

Anyone with information about these incidents is requested to contact the Sioux Lookout Detachment at 807-737-2020 or the non-emergency line, at 1-888-310-1122.
