“We received five separate calls this week for vehicle’s that were reportedly abandoned,” said Cst. Spencer Lainchbury with the Golden-Field RCMP. “We understand that people use the lots such as the CP’s across from the 7-Eleven, the old scales, and other businesses for carpooling, but when the vehicle is left for an extended period of time others become concerned and contact police. This often results in us tying up resources unnecessarily.”
