Since May 01, 2021, The Grey Bruce OPP have attended a number of Break and Enters reported after the fact in the Municipality of Grey Highlands. During these investigations, it has been determined that garages and outbuildings have been entered, and property has been stolen. In several instances, door and windows to these buildings were unsecured, and entered without force.

The Grey Bruce OPP encourages members of the public to call in and report suspicious behaviour. Below are also some tips to help secure your property and make it less of a target:

  • Ensure there is outdoor lighting on your property - motion lighting, porch lights and other illuminating devices are a great deterrent. 
  • Lock windows and doors to your residence and out buildings. 
  • Keep valuables such as tools and machinery out of plain sight. 
  • Never leave keys inside your motor vehicle while it is unattended.

Grey Bruce OPP are continuing to investigate and anyone with information regarding this or any incident is asked to call the OPP at 1-888-310-1122 or online at www.opp.ca/reporting. Should you wish to remain anonymous you can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or leave an anonymous online message at www.P3tips.com where you may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000.

 


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
