Lunenburg County RCMP are investigating a string of break-ins that occurred on the night of August 20 and in the early morning hours of August 21.

Cpl. Chris Marshall says they received reports of four separate break-ins, most of which involved exterior building, though one was a home invasion that occurred while the homeowners were home and asleep.

The break-ins reportedly occurred on Highway 332 in Upper LaHave, New Cumberland Road in Pleasantville, Mullock Road in Whynots Settlement and Larry Fraser Road in Dayspring.

In the Upper LaHave break in an SUV parked outside was stolen, however, it was recovered a few days later in Halifax on August 22.

The victims of the break-in that occurred in Upper LaHave sent letters to their neighbors alerting them to what occurred, in an effort to increase vigilance against theft. It also explained that when the SUV was recovered there was evidence of intravenous drug use in the vehicle. It explained that while the building’s doors were locked, the windows were not which the thief/thieves then used to get inside.

Cpl. Marshall says the RCMP investigation is ongoing, and in the meantime, he is reminding South Shore residents to ensure their house doors and windows, and car doors are locked nightly. “What we see often with break-ins, is that they are crimes of opportunity, people try opening doors until they find one that’s unlocked and then they quickly take whats easily accessible before leaving the scene,”.

The RCMP could not confirm whether or not to properties broken into were locked.
