(TECUMSEH, LAKESHORE ON) - The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is responding to a recent spike in property related calls for service in two of their municipalities.

During the month of August, property based offences including break and enters, thefts from vehicles, thefts of motor vehicles and mischiefs to property have increased in the area over previous months.

OPP uniform patrol officers in collaboration with the OPP Community Street Crime Unit (CSCU) have now identified and arrested 3 individuals involved in these offences and others are being sought as this investigation continues.

The following persons remain in custody facing charges in relation to these occurrences:
Cindy ALBANO, age 47 of Windsor, Ontario

Possession of Break-In Instruments
Possession of Property Obtained by Crime Under $5000

As the OPP in all Essex County communities continue to proactively patrol neighbourhoods as a crime deterrent, community members need to be vigilant and engaged to discourage criminals who prey on unlocked vehicles, open garage doors and property left in plain view and easily accessible.

The OPP's LOCK IT OR LOSE IT CAMPAIGN (see attachment) encourages all homeowners to lock their vehicles securing all valuables out of sight as most criminals will simply move on if a vehicle's doors are locked.

The OPP also reminds the public that all incidents however minor should be reported to the London Provincial Communications Center (PCC) @ 1-888-310-1122. Emergent or crimes in progress should be reported via 911.

Despite the recent rise in calls for service in these communities, municipalities policed by the OPP in Essex County continue to be ranked in the top percentile of the safest communities in the country according to Statistics Canada.

"It's unfortunate that our communities continue to remain vulnerable to the criminal intent of certain individuals that look for crimes of opportunity. An unlocked vehicle can lead very quickly to a garage door being opened and a residence or business being entered. It takes considerable resources to investigate these property crimes however it can only take an instant of your time to prevent a crime by properly locking your vehicles and homes. Should you see any suspicious activity we urge you to immediately contact the OPP. We ask you not to disturb what we would regard as a crime scene until the proper collection of evidence has taken place. The OPP Community Mobilization and Engagement Model is an acknowledgement that no single organization can solve a community's problems on its own and this collaborative approach to community safety lends itself in providing a safe and secure community."
