Unlike the change of seasons, some things remain the same, including the theft of vehicles in Barrie.

Since the beginning of June, police say they have investigated the theft of five vehicles, as well as one closed utility trailer and an e-bike.

According to a police news release on Thursday, thieves have targeted two Dodge RAM's, 1 Ford F150, 1 Lexus RX350 and a Hyundai Elantra.

"If you own one of these motor vehicles, or any other vehicle that has been identified as popular amongst thieves,  you are strongly encouraged to consider using a steering wheel lock, a wheel/tire lock or boot, consider installing an aftermarket ignition immobilizer, and if you are a resident of Barrie, you can attend Barrie Police Headquarters, show your driver’s licence, and obtain a faraday bag for your key fobs," police stated. "If you are unable to park your car in your garage, please do something to keep it in your possession such as installing or redirecting home security cameras, blocking it with another car or simply keeping your outside lights on overnight."
