If you're looking to get outside to enjoy the fall weather, make sure your garage door is closed.

RCMP in Okotoks are warning of garage thefts in town.

They've had reports of thefts from open garages in broad daylight while homeowners were out in their backyards.

Stolen items range from tools, to bikes, to children's toys.

Of course, if vehicles and attached house doors are also unlocked, that presents even more easy windows of opportunity for thieves.
