Unlocked doors spark ‘crimes of opportunity,’ warn Sarnia Police

Leaving a door unlocked resulted in the theft of computer and game equipment from a Shafer Court residence Wednesday night while the occupants slept, say Sarnia Police.

Also stolen were a camera and music player as well as two purses.

“Citizens must get in the habit of locking doors and windows,” said Cst. Bill Baines, “We have to realize that many of these types of incidentsĀ are crimes of opportunity and we can eliminate a great number of them by simply securing our homes.”

Police are asking anyone with information regarding this break and enter or other crime to contact the Sarnia Police Criminal Investigation DivisionĀ or Crime Stoppers.
