Six break and enters reported in Green Acres

Six break and enters occurred in the Green Acres ward of Brandon between last Thursday evening and Friday morning.

Overnight, suspects entered the unlocked doors of garages and sheds and, in some cases, cut locks to gain access. Police believe more than one individual was involved.

In a serious incidence, a Marlin lever action .22 calibre rifle was stolen from a garage in the 300 block of Queens Avenue East.

"Anytime we have a gun in the wrong hands is concerning to police," replied Brandon Police Service Sgt. Kevin McLean. "That gun that was stolen was locked up, and they took the time to cut that lock and take the gun."

In other thefts, liquor and soft drinks were taken.

The break and enters occurred between Applewood Bay and Hazelwood Crescent, McLean said.

As a result of conversation among neighbours following the thefts, other Green Acres residents informed police of break-ins at their properties that occurred in recent days, he added.

Police continue to investigate.
