Police investigating B&E Series in Southeast Division
FThe Edmonton Police Service is reminding residents to lock all residential garage and primary dwelling doors, on the heels of a recent brazen B&E series across southeast Edmonton.
Southeast Division Detectives are investigating a series of seven over-night residential break and enters that were reported to police between April 24-30, 2019, including four incidents that occurred last evening, Monday, April 29, 2019.
In each of the incidents, suspects gained entry into the complainants’ primary residence through unlocked garages and dwelling doors. Once inside, the suspects quickly located vehicle keys and wallets nearby, before stealing the vehicles.
Neighbourhoods targeted include Lee Ridge, Kameyosek, Weinlos, Laurel, Millbourne and Ellerslie.
Investigators are also concerned given the brazen approach of the intruders, who appear to have walked into the homes while families were sleeping. Several of the stolen vehicles have since been recovered, including a 1999 Acura, a BMW and a Kia Sportage. Police continue to search for a grey Toyota Tundra, Alberta Licence plate #BZC0087 and a white Chevy Cobalt, Alberta Licence plate #BFB5367.
Anyone with information regarding this southeast residential B&E series of the suspect(s) involved are asked to contact police at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.
