During the early morning hours of Wednesday January 23rd, unknown persons broke into several businesses in the 4700 block of Tebo Ave.

The unidentified suspects entered the yards of three businesses in the area. In one instance, the suspects entered the locked compound through a hole in the fence. In two of the yards, the suspects broke into large locked metal storage containers stealing several items including some power tools. In another compound, company vehicles parked in the area were rummaged through and one was vandalized.

At approximately 6 am, employees to a fourth business came face to face with the suspects when they entered their locked compound to find two suspects inside the yard. Upon being seen by the employees, the suspects claimed to be looking for scrap metal then turned and ran out through a hole in the perimeter fence. The suspects then fled the area in a light grey or off white coloured, older model, 4 door sedan. The vehicle was without a front licence plate and had a burnt out headlight. A third suspect may be involved and stayed in the suspect vehicle.

One of the suspects is described as a man in his 20’s, approx 5’7” or 5’8” tall, thin build, scruffy looking with dark hair and a beard.
