Police investigate daytime residential Break and Enter

Your Orangeville Police Service is investigating a Break and Enter to a Buena Vista Drive residence early Tuesday afternoon.

On Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at approximately 12:45pm, an unknown suspect (or suspects) used force to enter the front door of a residence on Buena Vista Drive. The home owner was not present at the time. The victim reports that there was nothing missing and it is believed that an audible security alarm caused the culprit(s) to leave the residence.

Police are continuing their investigation and would like to speak with anyone who may have noticed any suspicious persons or suspicious activity in the area of Buena Vista Drive and Clarke Avenue on Tuesday.

Police also remind residents to lock vehicles and out-buildings when not in use to avoid being a victim of theft.

Warmer weather traditionally shows an increase in property crimes. Such crimes can often be avoided by ensuring that valuables are removed from vehicles and that doors are locked when not in use. In addition to vehicles, it is good practice to close and lock garages, and backyard sheds.

Residents are also encouraged to be vigilant for suspicious people and vehicles in their neighborhoods. If you witness any suspicious activity, please call police.

The Orangeville Police Service wishes to thank residents for their support in helping to keep our community safe!

Anyone having information regarding any crime is encouraged to call the Orangeville Police Service at 519-941-2522 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.crimestopperssdm.com.
