Break and enter crimes spike in Duncan
The northwest part of Duncan was hit hard in April by thieves finding a way to break into people's homes.
RCMP Cpl. Kevin Day said over 20 break ins have been concentrated in areas from Limerick Rd. to Chesterfield Ave., east to west, and Limerick Rd. to Club Rd. north to south. And he said the culprits have been using the same approach.
“The break ins appear to be occurring during the morning hours when residents have left for the day,” he said. “In some cases, they’ve been asleep in their beds when an individual has actually entered their residence and stolen various items.”
The alleged thieves have been taking smaller items, such as jewelry and electronic equipment and generally getting in through windows and doors left unlocked.
The RCMP have a suspect in mind and are looking for someone in particular who’s been spotted in the area. He is described as Caucasian, 5'8" to 5'10" with short brown hair.
The RCMP urge you to contact them if you have any information.
To avoid being a victim, Day recommends you lock your doors and windows when you're not at home, use timers on lights, join the Block Watch and get someone to watch over your house if you're going to be away.
