The Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) is investigating four additional break and enters that occurred during the overnight hours of September 11 and 12, 2016. The entries were committed in the Dorval Drive and QEW area of Oakville while the residents were sleeping. In three of the occurrences the suspect(s) gained access to the home through an unlocked door or window. Access to the fourth home was made by prying open a patio door that had no safety bar.
