A num­ber of bur­gla­ries in the Pres­cottRus­sell re­gion over the sum­mer months have promp­ted the OPP to re­mind ho­meow­ners that they need to re­view their home se­cu­ri­ty se­tup.

Po­lice sus­pect an open win­dow or an un­lo­cked door may have al­lo­wed a bur­glar ea­sy en­try to a home on Front Road West in Cham­plain Town­ship. The day­time brea­kin on Ju­ly 26 is be­lie­ved to have oc­cur­red bet­ween 10:20 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

The sus­pect left the pre­mises, ta­king a sil­ver-and-white iPad and some as­sor­ted je­we­le­ry. To­tal va­lue of the sto­len goods is es­ti­ma­ted at $2200. Anyone with in­for­ma­tion about anyone trying to sell an iPad of that des­crip­tion or some gold je­we­le­ry is as­ked to call Const. Me­la­nie Dufresne at 613-632-2729 or the Cri­meS­top­pers toll­free confi­den­tial tips line at 1-800-222-8477.

Ho­meow­ners can re­duce the chance of bur­gla­ry by ma­king sure all win­dows and doors are shut and have se­cure locks set when they go out. In­vest in a home se­cu­ri­ty alarm sys­tem if pos­sible. If ab­sent on va­ca­tion or over­night, ar­range to have so­meone ei­ther stay on the pro­per­ty or come by to check on it and al­so to col­lect mail.
