From Aug. 12 to Aug. 18, Kamloops residents reported 36 thefts from vehicles.
That weekly figure is the lowest seen so far in the seven weeks Kamloops RCMP has been reporting theft from motor vehicle statistics to media.
On average, as of this week, there are 47 thefts from vehicles each week.
Mounties are releasing a map each week that shows where in the city the 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.
