Muskoka OPP units are helping holiday shoppers keep their gifts safe. The Bracebridge and Huntsville OPP detachments are kicking off their “Lock It Or Lose It” campaign in the area.

Officers will be out checking cars to see if they are locked, and to check no valuables are left out in plain sight. A notice will then be put on cars with safety tips to keep your car, and valuables inside, safe from theft.

Some of those tips include keeping important items in the trunk, parking in a well-lit area, and keeping the doors locked. The OPP says by taking simple measures theft can be avoided.
