Police are investigating a string of vehicle thefts early Friday in the Municipality of Port Hope, Ont.
According to the Port Hope Police Service, three pickup trucks were reported stolen over a three-hour span between 4:15 a.m. and 7:35 a.m.
The vehicles stolen are 2022 models of Dodge Rebel 1500 and Dodge Ram Longhorn and a 2021 Dodge Ram.
Police early Friday responded to a call of a suspicious man walking around a vehicle in a driveway and up to the front door of a residence with what police believe is a “sophisticated” scanning device contained in a backpack.
Investigators believe the suspect used the device to read vehicle fobs located within the victim’s residence to then steal the vehicle.
