Break /Enter / Theft
On June 27th at 8:56 am, Brockville Police attended a north end apartment building for a theft complaint.
The female resident awoke to find her purse and personal items stolen. She believes the culprit(s) came in through a sliding patio door.
The investigation continues.
Police remind people to secure patio and sliding screen doors. The heat causes folks to look for some kind of relief during evening or over night hours by opening windows and doors. Take the extra step to secure these residential openings to avoid becoming a victim. Reducing opportunity is another way to prevent crimes.
