Examples include: hospitals, Commonwealth Stadium, Milner Library or Edmonton Centre. These have pedestrian access. </span></p> <p><span style="color: #333333;">2) Parkades in apartment buildings and condominiums.

This is quite common in Edmonton, as&nbsp;a thief may use it to break into your house&nbsp;while you are away. </span></p> </li> <li style="color: #333333;"> <p style="color: #000000; margin-top: 0cm; margin-bottom: 0pt;"><span style="color: #333333;">Theft of vehicle license plates is common.
