Prowler in the Palmer Drive community in Burlington is also peeping – into your home.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON  December 23, 2011  – Halton Regional Police have received reports of a prowler who is doing more than prowling along Palmer Drive near Guelph Line. The prowler’s actions suggest he was peeping into the homes.

The man is described as being in his forties 6’1, 220 lbs., wearing blue jeans, a grey sweater and grey hat.

There have been several similar incidents reported to the Halton Regional Police Service both in Burlington and Oakville dating back to early 2011. In these earlier incidents, the reports were of a suspect masturbating while looking into homes. Police believe that the same person is responsible for many of these acts.  There is no evidence that the culprit ever attempted to enter any of the residences.

The Halton Regional Police Service would like to remind residents to be vigilant in reporting any suspicious behaviour around their homes to police.   Additionally, police would like to hear from those residents who have experienced similar incidents that have previously gone unreported.  Further, police are asking that if residents encounter incidents of this nature, they DO NOT confront the culprit but immediately call 911.

Anyone with information in relation to these or any other crimes is asked to contact the Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905 825-4747 x2215 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
