EDMONTON — Police in Edmonton are warning owners of newer-model Ford F150 pickups that thieves are using “sophisticated technology” to steal their vehicles.
They say in a news release that they’re investigating more than a dozen thefts of F150s throughout the city since Friday.
The thefts have specifically targeted 2018-2020 model year F150s equipped with push-button start.
Police say the thieves are “using sophisticated technology to defeat the trucks’ anti-theft systems.”
They advise owners to park in a secure location, such as a garage, or in well-lit, high traffic areas.
Owners are also advised to remove all valuables from the vehicle, and use a steering-wheel lock similar to The Club if possible.
