Thieves appear to be targeting seniors in home break-ins

Thieves appear to be targeting seniors in home break-ins

KITCHENER Senior citizens have been targeted in a rash of break-ins in three Kitchener neighbourhoods this summer and now Waterloo regional police are asking for public assistance to nab the culprits.

Since early July, police are aware of at least 24 incidents primarily in the Rosemount and Heritage Park neighbourhoods, and at homes on side streets off Weber Street East between Ottawa Street and Fergus Avenue in the Stanley Park area.

A large number of the victims are over 70 and in about nine cases, the break-ins occurred during the day while people were working in their yards, police said Thursday.

The thieves either entered through unlocked doors or broke in by forcing doors open or cutting screens. Jewelry and cash were taken.

At one break-in, a man described as being white, five feet eight inches, in his late 40s and with thick grey hair was spotted.

Police remind residents to keep their premises secure and report any suspicious activity in their neighbourhood.

Any one with information can call police at 519-650-8500, ext. 4499 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
