Police say the 2018 Ford F150 pickup truck was taken from a home on Windham Road 14 on Wednesday morning. It was discovered that a key fob for the vehicle had been left inside when it was stolen. The vehicle was later located at an address in Oxford County.

Below are some simple steps to help reduce the number of stolen vehicles and protect you as the vehicle owner:

- Do not leave your keys in your vehicle. 
- Do not leave your vehicle running.
- Lock your vehicle.
- Treat your keys like cash - Don't leave keys in places where they are easy to steal such as a gym locker, on your desk at work, in an open purse or unattended in a shopping cart.
- Never leave anything in your vehicle in plain view such as loose change, cell phones, cameras, clothing, gifts, cigarettes, medication, firearms or any other valuables.
- Install a remote car starter - Remote starters are designed to shut off if anyone attempts to drive the vehicle without a key. This will allow you to warm up your car without risk of theft.
