Police seek B&E suspect

Police are trying to track down a suspect believed to be involved in at least four residential break and enters.

  • If you plan to be away for any length of time, do not mention it on social media.

 

  • If you are away, have someone take care of  your home and create an illusion of occupancy.

 

  • Have proper lighting to prevent shadows or areas of darkness.

 

  • Talk to your neighbours and report anything suspicious.

 

  • Have adequate locking mechanisms for doors and windows.
