From Aug. 19 to Aug. 25, Kamloops residents reported 35 thefts from motor vehicles. There were 36 reported between Aug. 18 and 24.

Last week, 10 thefts were reported in South Kamloops, eight from the North Shore, five occurred downtown and one in Valleyview, according to maps provided by Kamloops RCMP.

Two thefts from vehicles in Campbell Creek, another in Dallas and one in a rural part of town were not captured on the maps. Five reports had unknown locations for where the thefts took place.

Mounties are releasing a map each week to show where in the city thefts are occurring.

“These maps are not just a reminder to motorists to lock their vehicles, but also to all citizens, to remind them that if they see suspicious behaviour in their neighbourhood, to call the police,” Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said, when announcing the mapping project.
