Police issued a warning to Lexus owners on Wednesday after six RX350 SUVs were stolen in Edmonton in the last 24 hours.

According to the Edmonton Police Service, nearly 50 Lexus RX350s have been stolen in Alberta in 2023, with 19 of them being in Edmonton.

Most of the SUVs are 2019 to 2022 models, but a few 2016 and 2017 models have also been targeted.

The thieves are disabling the GPS tracking systems, police say.
