Police investigating six seasonal property break-ins

The South Bruce Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is reminding seasonal property owners to ensure their valuables are removed and the property is properly secured to prevent potential break-ins and thefts.

This reminder comes after two cottages along Golf Course Trail in Kincardine and four cottages along Bruce Beach Road in Huron Township were broken into sometime between October 16, 2020 and October 19, 2020.

The list of stolen property includes a Hisense big screen TV, a Panasonic plasma TV, power tools and a Bose surround sound system.

The OPP encourage property owners to frequently check, or have someone check on their seasonal properties during the “off-season”.

Consider engraving valuables with an identifier using an engraver or permanent marker to deter criminals from stealing them. It will also make it easier for Police to return property to the rightful owner if recovered.

Any suspicious people, vehicle or activity should be reported to police immediately so that an officer can investigate.
