Police reminding residents not to leave garage door openers in vehicles following Oakville break-in

Halton police are reminding residents to keep garage door openers out of their vehicles when not in use following a break-in to an Oakville home on Thursday, March 18.

At approximately 3 a.m., two men approached a residence on Thruxton Drive and entered an unlocked vehicle in the driveway, police said.

Nothing was stolen from the vehicle, but a garage door opener was discovered and used to get into the garage.

Once inside, police said, the intruders stole an acoustic guitar and a bottle of alcohol.

The stolen property is valued at around $200.

Both men are described as 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-10.

One wore a hoodie while the other wore a puffy jacket and a baseball cap.

Police are calling on residents to keep their vehicles locked when not in use.

They also want members of the public to remove all valuables from their vehicles, including garage door openers, as these can give suspects easy access to a home.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Halton police at 905-825-4747 ext. 2216 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
