The Halton Regional Police are investigating nine residential break and enters that occurred during the day in South East Oakville in the past week.
The M.O. for these robberies is different from the series of break ins that Oakville experienced last month, in those cases the robbers entered through the rear of the homes during the day. This time the thieves are brazenly entering the homes by primarily forcing the front door open during the middle of the day. The suspects are targeting jewelry, electronics, and tools. Unfortunately, there are no descriptions available at this time for potential suspect(s) or the vehicle they may have used.
Police could be aided in their search by home owners who have installed a video surveillance security system, if they register their system with the Halton Regional Police Services Security Camera Registration and Monitoring Program (S.C.R.A.M.). This community-based crime prevention and investigative tool allows individuals to identify and register residential video surveillance equipment through a simple, secure, confidential, online form located on the Service’s website.
The Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) is reminding residents to remain vigilant about home security in the wake of increased residential break and enters especially in South-East Oakville along the Trafalgar corridor.
Police are advising homeowners to activate any alarm systems, to ensure all windows and doors are locked, and to keep valuable items out of view from the street before departing. They also urge members of the public to connect with neighbours who are home during the day and encourage them to call police if they observe anything suspicious.
Anyone who may have any information pertaining to this investigation is asked to contact the Oakville Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825 4747 ext. 2255, Crime Stoppers “See Something, Hear Something, Say Something” at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), through the web at www.haltoncrimestoppers.ca or by texting “Tip 201” with your message to 274637 (crimes)
