He told officers the main door to his home as well as his garage doors were wide open. The female was described as being in her mid-fifties with a European accent.

A Cramahe resident reported that her 2006 green Ford Escape with Ontario licence plate number CANR 167 was parked in her driveway on Peacock Lane in Cramahe Township. She went to go to work and realized it had been stolen sometime overnight. The vehicle was unlocked and the keys were left inside. Police would like to remind the public that an unlocked vehicle could not only result in an obvious loss of anything that may be left in it, but could allow an opportunistic thief the ability to gain valuable documentation that could lead to identity theft. Lock it or Lose it; it's that simple. *
