Rash of rural break-ins in Fort Macleod area

- Advertisement -

Fort Macleod RCMP say since mid-July officers have been called out to a number of homes in the area.

Police believe the suspect or suspects appear to know that no one is at these homes and either find an open door or force their way inside.

Everything from electronics to cash and other valuable items have been stolen.

Rural homeowners are being reminded to make sure all doors and windows are locked.

Police say suspects sometimes use a ploy or cover story of sorts when knocking on doors to see if anyone is actually home, so people should be on the look out for suspicious vehicles in rural areas.

Anyone with information on these break and enters is asked to contact Fort Macleod RCMP.
