Area OPP Police Press Releases

More Area Break And Enters

(PERTH EAST, ON) – Two residences were victim to break and enters last week, and both are on the same road in the Township of Perth East.

On November 30 2020, just after 5:30 a.m., Perth County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) received the first report of a break and enter that had occurred at a residence on Road 145. Unknown suspect(s) entered a garage overnight, and rummaged through a vehicle. In this incident, money and bank cards were stolen.

Further, shortly after 8:00 a.m. on November 30 2020, the Perth County OPP received a second report of a break and enter, also on Road 145. Again, a garage was entered and a variety of items, including a GPS, sunglasses, motorcycle helmets, and money were stolen.

The Perth County OPP would like to remind the public to keep vehicles locked at all times, and never leave keys in, or near, a vehicle. Unlocked vehicles become easy targets, and can be used to commit other crimes, including break and enters, or driving offences, such as impaired driving (by drugs or alcohol). Stolen vehicles also pose a risk to the public when drivers flee from police, driving in a dangerous manner in order to evade arrest. Stolen credit cards can be used to make purchases before the owner ever notices that they are missing.

Anyone with information regarding this or any incident is asked to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or online at Should you wish to remain anonymous you can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or leave an anonymous online message at where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.
