RCMP in the Elk Valley are dealing with a spike in petty theft from vehicles in Fernie.
Police say they’ve responded to several complaints from residents over the last month who had their automobiles rummaged through overnight.
However, Mounties indicate many of the vehicles were left unlocked.
Small items such as identification, loose change and wallets have reportedly been taken.
Anyone with information about the rash of thefts are asked to contact RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
