Ownership documents were stolen from two vehicles in Delhi on Thursday.

Norfolk OPP say someone entered a barn on Dalton Road and removed the documents.

There have been other reported thefts of vehicle ownership documents recently in Norfolk.

Const. Ed Sanchuk with the Norfolk County OPP recommends carrying important documents such as ownership and insurance papers at all times.

“It contains quite a bit of personal information that could be used for identification theft,” he said.

While the information may not be used right away, thieves could use the information 10 years from now.

“You just don't know,” said Sanchuk.

Residents should also be careful when throwing away mail and other documents.

Police suggest using a shredder and removing information such as your address even from junk mail.

Sanchuk recommends getting a yearly credit check and if you do suspect any of your information has been stolen contact your financial institutions immediately.

Police are also warning the public to immediately report if their licence plate or validation sticker are stolen.

“They put them on other stolen vehicles or they are used in other crimes,” said Sanchuk.
