In another incident, a resident of Princeton-Summerland Road reported his 2005 GMC pick up was stolen after the vehicle was left unlocked with keys in the glove box.
On Monday night, Wrigglesworth says a 1993 Dodge Caravan reported stolen from Peachland, was left in a driveway on St. Andrews Drive in Kaleden, after a man with his face covered was caught on camera disconnecting the security camera in the garage.
