(PERTH EAST, ON) – Another vehicle has been stolen in the Township of Perth East, this time following a break and enter in Sebringville.
On January 06 2021, just before 9:00 a.m., the Perth County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received a report of a break and enter and stolen vehicle from a residence on Jean Street, in Sebringville. The suspect entered the unlocked garage man door, and drove the vehicle out of the garage.
Another citizen notified police of a suspicious female walking with a backpack, checking cars in the area shortly after 4:00 a.m. The suspect may have been associated to a white car also seen in the area at the time.
The vehicle was later recovered in the Windsor area, but the suspect has not been identified.
The Perth County OPP would like to remind the public to keep vehicles and buildings locked at all times, and never leave keys in, or near, a vehicle. Unlocked vehicles become easy targets, and can be used to commit other crimes, including break and enters, or driving offences, such as impaired driving (by drugs or alcohol). Stolen vehicles also pose a risk to the public when drivers flee from police, driving in a dangerous manner in order to evade arrest.
Anyone with information regarding this or any incident is asked to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or online at www.opp.ca/reporting. Should you wish to remain anonymous you can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or leave an anonymous online message at www.P3tips.com where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.
