Kamloops Mounties have received numerous reports of travel trailer batteries being stolen.
In most of the cases, the strap holding the battery on the trailer was cut.
Police believe thieves are taking the batteries to recycling centres for fees paid out for the items.
CPl. Jodi Shelkie said travel trailer owners should mark their batteries with some form of identification (for example, a driver’s licence number) and attach them securely to the trailer.
Further preventive measures include parking trailers in well-lit, open areas.
Anybody witnessing suspicious behaviour is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
