Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are reminding residents of the danger of leaving their vehicles unlocked and unattended after a recent theft.

According to OPP Central Region, a pickup truck was stolen in a matter of seconds in the town of Bolton this week after its owner left it running and unattended in a residential area.

The incident, which was reported at around 8:50 a.m., took place near Wakely Boulevard on Tuesday, May 25. A video of the incident was also released highlighting just how quickly the theft took place.

"The complaint told the officers that they parked and left their grey 2019 Ford-150 pickup truck running on Wakely Boulevard. When the owner returned three minutes later the vehicle was gone," an excerpt from the police report reads.

OPP in Caledon also reported two similar thefts on Sunday, May 16, where both cars were stolen from a driveway.
