The theft of a snowmobile near Kirkland Lake has sparked the OPP’s efforts to make sure riders are keeping their sleds safe and secure. Police say the snowmobile was stolen right out of the back of a pick-up truck and it can take less than 30 seconds for thieves to make off with a sled.

The OPP is asking riders to make sure valuables and documentation is locked up, keys are not left in the vehicle and to park it in a well-lit area if possible.
