Weyburn Police say that over the past weeks and months there have been a number of vehicles stolen from within the city and the surrounding area.
In all cases where the vehicles had been recovered, keys were left in the vehicles with the doors unlocked.
Police urge people to take proper steps to secure their property.
These are primarily crimes of opportunity and if a vehicle is locked without keys in it the culprits simply pass on to the next easy target.
