Suspicious activity caught on camera in Kitchener neighbourhood
Residents of a Kitchener neighbourhood are on edge after what they’re calling a slew of break-in attempts.
One of the streets targeted was Seabrook Drive in Huron Park. There, a resident says that two people were captured on video surveillance approaching a home.
“There’s people going around scoping out houses, to see where is going to be best to go at,” explains Victoria Cook, who lives in the area and says she has seen suspicious activity.
She also says that people have been putting up more cameras and going on more walks to try to find those involved.
The police have also been called several times, Cook says.
In a statement, regional police confirmed that they had received several reports.
"After reviewing the area more closely, we have located three Break and Enter reports that occurred in January. Within the last month we have received several reports of thefts from vehicles," said Const. Ashley Dietrich with the WRPS on Wednesday.
The woman who posted the video online says she believes they were trying to open garages and checking front and backdoors. She says they went in between the homes and into her neighbour’s backyard.
More residents have since spoken out saying their homes have also been targeted.
On nearby Tottenham Street, another resident says they had a similar situation happen to them.
In the early hours of the morning, their house alarm went off. They say the garage door had been tampered with.
