It must have been terrifying.

In the middle of the afternoon there is someone at your door attempting to force their way into your home.

Female suspect in background

The image picked up by a security camera may be small but with the technical tools the police have they are able to zoom in and get a considerable amount of information.

In this instance Halton Regional Police report that the homeowner was in the house when a female suspect is described as: female white, approximately 50 years of age, light coloured hair (gray or blonde), medium build, 5’3″ to 5’7″ tall, wearing a blue floral button up shirt, gray Capri style pants, black socks and gray converse style shoes made the attempt.

The suspect vehicle involved in the entry is described as a 1998-2001 purple Nissan Altima.

Suspect vehicle

The police have a clear image of the vehicle used by the suspect – why would a female, thought to be about 50 years of age driving a relatively recent car want to break into a home in the middle of the afternoon?

The police were able to get an image from a security camera located in the immediate area.

Nothing was stolen.
