The Waterloo Regional Police Service (WRPS) says at around 1:40 p.m. on Friday, they responded to a break-in in progress at an apartment in the area of Field Gate Street and Highland Crescent in Kitchener.

Unknown suspects got in by damaging the door and stole personal items, according to a news release from police. No one was home at the time of the alleged break-in.

Police offered tips to help prevent break-ins:

  • Keep doors and windows locked, even when home.
  • Keep valuables out of common areas and out of plain sight.
  • Install home video surveillance cameras in the front and back of your residence.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
