Police warn second-floor windows popular break-in route

A string of West Island home-break-ins have lead police to remind homeowners to put away anything that could be used to get up to second-storey windows where thieves can often break-in undetected by alarm systems.

Montreal police community relations officers Jean-Pierre Lévis at Station 1 in Kirkland said 14 home burglaries were reported last week in Kirkland, Baie d’Urfé, Senneville and Beaconsfield and, in 4 of the 14 burglaries, suspects got in through second-floor windows.

Barbecues, picnic tables and other objects that are not locked up away from the house can be used as impromptu ladders, he reminded homeowners.

No arrests have been made in connection with last week’s break-ins.
