OPP in Leeds and 1000 Islands Township have been experiencing an increase in reports of daylight break and enters.
The investigation has determined that suspects have generally entered homes by forcing a rear door to the residence. Once inside, they go through the home and are appearing to take mostly smaller items including, jewellery, cash and electronics.
One suspect has been described as a male 40 to 45 years old, with medium length dark hair. Another suspect has been described as 5’10”, thin build, light brown or blonde hair.
A man fitting that description was at the scene of a break in on Cty. Rd. west of Lansdowne on Sept. 23.
The homeowners left their residence around 10 a.m. that day and returned several hours later to find their home had been broken into. Culprits entered the home by forcing a rear locked door. Several items of jewellery were taken from the home.
Investigation has shown that the suspects will park their vehicle down the road from the homes and approach on foot. The O.P.P. has received various information regarding suspect vehicles.
