(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Overnight, as is tradition, yet another neighbourhood was hit by car-hoppers.
A “car-hopper” is someone who lurks around after dark with intent to steal your items. They will lurk around your vehicles, testing the car handles to see if you left them unlocked. Upon discovering an unlocked vehicle, they will enter the vehicle and take anything they find of value, often to sell.
The typical “car-hopper” often has an out of control addiction and use this method to secure their next fix of drugs.
Last night, around 5:20 am a car-hopper was in the Northwood area and was caught on video attempting to gain entry to a vehicle.
The homeowner tells us that this is not something new for them, as they have experienced this issue numerous times over the year.
Below is the video provided which shows the incident overnight and a couple historic incidents over the last year.
