Break and enters into garages

Sometime Wednesday night, someone entered an unlocked garage on Talbot Trail in Blenheim and entered two unlocked vehicles. A wallet containing money, identification and bankcards was stolen.

And sometime Wednesday night, someone entered a garage on Harwich Road and stole an industrial heater.

The Chatham-Kent Police would like to remind everyone that criminals look for easy opportunities. Ensure the doors and windows to your homes, garages and vehicles are locked. Do not leave keys or any valuables in your vehicle, even if it’s parked in your garage.
