Essex County OPP said it responded to multiple calls Thursday morning from residents of those municipalities, all of which were of a similar nature. That is, the detection of theft from a vehicle.

The robbery is believed to have taken place during the night from Wednesday to Thursday.

A criminal activity called “car hopping” is a criminal activity in which a suspect casually checks multiple vehicles parked in an area and gives a brief score.

The Essex County OPP reminds all good citizens that they should never leave valuables in their vehicles and should always lock their vehicles when unattended.

Anyone who observes “car hopping” or other suspicious activity is encouraged to call OPP at 1-888-310-1122.

Anonymous tips are available from Crime Stoppers (519-258-8477 or www.catchcrooks.com).
