The Halton Regional Police is seeking the public's assistance in identifying three suspects who have recently committed break and enters in four separate apartment buildings in Oakville.
In the past week, the Halton Regional Police Service has received reports of four break and enters occurring in different apartment buildings. The break and enters have occurred on Speers Road, East Street, Queen Mary Drive, and Queens Avenue.
Three of the entries entailed suspects forcing open the apartment door. The fourth entry involved access via an unlocked door.
During one of the incidents, surveillance footage captured a female suspect propping open a side door and allowing two male suspects to enter the building. The suspects proceeded to break into an apartment unit and steal jewelry from a bedroom.
