Another one: police looking for two suspects and their vehicle after a daylight home entry in Burlington.

 By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON  May 16. 2013  Earlier in the week just past mid-afternoon a resident  arrived home to find a vehicle in the driveway and a man descending a flight of stairs from his apartment area.  Once at his apartment he recognized it had been broken into and property had been stolen.

The man he had seen on the stairs had taken off running down the street and the suspicious vehicle had hurriedly backed out of the driveway and was seen to pick up the man a short distance away.  The victim recalled seeing the same man the day prior when he appeared at his door attempting to sell him CD’s. 

The victim had a television and Apple IPOD stolen from his apartment and he recalled seeing a television in the rear seat of the suspicious vehicle when he passed by it.

Suspect #1 (driver) – male, black, 30 years of age, 6’2”, 180 lbs, thin build and dark hair in dreadlocks or braids

Suspect #2 – male, black, mid 20’s in age, 5’5”, 160 lbs, short buzzed hair, wearing a black sport jacket with a green t-shirt and dark blue jeans

Suspect vehicle – beige in colour, possibly a Ford Contour with structural damage to the driver’s front bumper and passenger door area 

The scam for these two appears to be going door to door trying to sell DVD’s and checking out a residence then going back and breaking in.  Alert your friends to this one.

There are an increasing number of daylight break-ins taking place.  Police advise residents to not even attempt to apprehend anyone you see breaking into your home.  Stay as calm as you can and look for details you can give the police – but call 911 first.

Look for facial details, license numbers, clothing details.  It is this kind of information that helps police catch the culprits.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Burlington Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905 825-4747 x2315, Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-TIPS(8477), through the web at or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637(crimes).
