Overnight Break and Enters
The Sarnia Police are investigating a number of overnight residential break ins.
Earlier this month, a suspect entered a home in the north end of the city in the middle of the night while the occupants slept. The owner had inadvertently left a front window open and the suspect cut the screen and climbed in the window. The thief went through some purses and wallets, stealing all the cash inside.
Then, early last Friday morning on August 16th, the suspect appears to have broken into two separate homes in the south end of the city.
In one house, the suspect gained entry in the middle of the night by cutting a small slit into a screen door and opening up the unlocked interior door. While the occupants slept, the suspect quietly entered the house and stole a purse which was later found in the Germain Park area.
At the second house, the suspect again cut a screen – but this time it was a kitchen window screen. Instead of entering this house, the industrious culprit made up an extended pole with a homemade hook on the end of it and used it to reach into the window, through the cut screen and hook onto a purse and pull it out the window. The suspect left the ‘purse-pole’ behind. Police seized the pole for examination.
If you know who made up the pole in the picture, or who broke into these homes, then you could actually make money off of their crime! Just get ahold of Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or at www.p3tips.com to become eligible for a cash reward if your information leads to an arrest… or contact Detective Constable ROVERS at 519-344-8861 ext 6159
This also serves as a bit of a warning not to leave ground floor windows and doors open or unlocked during the warm weather. And if you do hear someone breaking into your home, call 911 immediately. We don’t recommend that you confront a thief… leave that to the police.
