The university detachment of the RCMP and campus security have seized a number of stolen parking permits from students as part of an ongoing investigation into permit thefts.
Campus motorists are reminded that parking permits are non-transferable and should be purchased only from the campus office of Parking and Transportation, Campus Security.
Anyone found in possession of a stolen parking permit will be subject to a criminal investigation, police warn.
Violators will also have their vehicles impounded by campus security and will be assessed outstanding fines and payments for parking privileges.
