Police are asking the public to report any suspicious activity after three homes in a north Oshawa neighbourhood were broken into on Monday.
On Monday, February 29, 2016, at approximately 4:20 p.m., officers from East Division responded to Hunking Drive, in the Conlin Road East and Townline Road North area of Oshawa, regarding a break-in that had just occurred. A resident was home when he heard a loud bang on the main floor. The front door to the house had been kicked open and the suspect had already exited out the rear sliding doors. Nothing appeared to be missing as the suspect may had heard the occupant and then quickly fled.
Officers investigated two similar break and enters in the same neighbourhood, where the front door was forced open and items were stolen from inside. A house on Kurelo Drive was entered while no one was home and an entry to a house on Queensbury Drive was reported the next day.
Investigators are appealing to residents in the area who may have captured the suspect on video surveillance and ask the public to report any suspicious activity in their neighbourhood. The suspect may knock on the door prior to entry and claim he has the wrong house if the door is answered.
Anyone with new information is asked to contact D/Cst. Price of the East Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 1613.
Anonymous information can be sent to Durham Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.durhamregionalcrimestoppers.ca and tipsters may be eligible for a $2,000 cash reward.
