Those were not neighbours making a call – imagine what could have gone wrong had the criminals gotten into the house

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON January 17, 2012  It was a cold Canadian winter night with everyone in a home on Cherry Hill Crescent snuggled under their covers.  The sound of breaking glass at 3:30 am was not expected – and brought the residents of the house to their feet.

The police canine unit was brought in to track down suspects that had begun to break into a Cherry Cr home.

Suspects had attempted to enter the home by smashing a rear sliding glass door, but were scared off by the occupants who witnessed two males running from the area.

Police conducted an extensive search of the area, including the use of a canine unit, but were unable to locate those responsible.

Tips related to Home and Business security can be found at under the ‘Community Policing’ tab.
