Police say the areas of theft include, but are not limited to:

Call 9-1-1 if you witness suspicious activity in your neighbourhood, such as a person or persons walking from vehicle to vehicle checking door handles for unlocked vehicles, call 9-1- 1 immediately to report what you have seen to police.

Anyone with information that may assist police with these investigations is asked to contact the North Bay Police Service at 705-497- 5555.
