BURLINGTON, ON

 

There was no crime.

Good to know.

Last Saturday the Halton Regional Police requested assistance in identifying two males captured on video surveillance in a Burlington neighbourhood.

Police believed the two males may have been involved or had knowledge regarding break and enters in the area.
The males depicted in the pictures contacted police to identify themselves. Police investigation has revealed that both males are contactors working the in the area and are in no way related to any break and enters.

Neither of the men pictured below did anything illegal.  They are not wanted by the police – thy are just two hard working contractors who apparently thought there was a work opportunity at a particular house and were making an inquiry.

Suspect 1 -lakeshre -walkers AprilSuspect 2 lkshore - walkers AprilThis news story got started when police reported that a homeowner in the Lakeshore Road/Walkers Line area of Burlington reported suspicious activity at his residence.

Two males had approached his front door and peered inside; they fled quickly when the homeowner approached.

The males left the area in a newer model black Chevy Silverado four door pick-up truck. Police wanted to identify and speak to the men.

The meeting took place and there is no longer any suspicion regarding these two men.

The upside of all this is that the public knows there is a system of information distribution that the public can respond to – more than 3000 people read the original story.

Police are still investigating two residential break and enters on the same date in the same neighbourhood.

Anyone with information regarding the break and enters in the Burlington area is asked to contact D/Cst.
