Early in the morning on Sept. 28, a male suspect committed several break-ins in the Summerhill Avenue and Glen Road area. This is a continuation of similar break-ins within 53 Division in mid-August 2016. All entries were into residential homes with unsecured doors and windows. 

Residents in the area are reminded to safeguard their homes by keeping an exterior light on after dark and ensuring all windows and doors are secured and alarms or surveillance equipment is functional.

Police are asking residents to report any suspicious activity, persons or vehicles.
