DIGBY - Digby RCMP are looking for the public’s help to solve a rash of daytime break and enters in the Digby area that may be connected to similar crimes in Yarmouth and Annapolis Counties.
Digby RCMP have released the details of three break enters in a three-week period in Rossway, Bayview and Seabrook.
On Oct. 18, between 2:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., someone broke into a residence in the 12000 block of Hwy 217, Seabrook, and stole some cash.
Oct. 31 between 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., someone broke into a residence on Bluenose Drive, just off Lighthouse Road, in Bayview and ransacked the residence. At this time, the RCMP still aren’t sure if anything was stolen.
And Nov. 10, someone entered a residence on Hwy 217 in Rossway between 1 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. and stole cash, collectable coins and jewelry.
Digby RCMP Staff Sgt. Rocky Calhoun says they aren’t sure if this a local criminal or someone travelling through.
He said police are co-ordinating the investigation with officers in Annapolis and Yarmouth County where similar crimes have been reported.
Calhoun wasn’t aware of any local break and enters since Nov. 10.
“People should be vigilant,” he said. “Lock their doors and report suspicious crimes suspicious people in the neighbourhood, and really, people do a good job of that already.”
Calhoun said if someone comes home and finds their house has been broken into, they should leave immediately and immediately report the crime to the RCMP.
“Call us right away,” he said. “They may still be in the house or nearby, there may be a trail we can follow or evidence.”
