Residential, night time break-ins in the Brant – Upper Middle Rd. part of town.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON. August 5, 2013.  Halton Regional Police are investigating a series of night time residential break and enters that have occurred in the Brant Street and Upper Middle Road area of Burlington over the past two weeks.

In these instances, a door or window has been left open or unlocked allowing thieves to enter the residences or garages. Investigators believe that the suspects are targeting small electronics and in none of the instances have any home owners been confronted by the intruders.

 Residents are reminded to remain vigilant and keep doors and windows locked when away from home or asleep as a screened door or window can easily be cut or removed by thieves.

Police offer the following tips to homeowners as a means of reducing the risk of their homes to being broken into:

 • Securely lock all windows/doors to home

• Have an alarm/video surveillance system installed

• Utilize exterior lighting

• Use locks on gates to backyard

• If you suspect your home has been entered and/or an intruder is still present within or nearby, contact 9-1-1 immediately for police assistance.
