Halton Regional Police have released surveillance photos of a suspect after a couple of Oakville apartment buildings allegedly experienced break-ins.
Police say surveillance video shows a man entering one building around 4 a.m. last Wednesday after prying open a side door.
According to police, the man then allegedly used a grinder saw to try to get into tenant mailboxes, the superintendent’s office and an underground garage, but he was unsuccessful. Police say the suspect did, however, pry open a vending machine in the lobby, and some beverages were taken.
Just over an hour later, police say the same suspect was seen on a security camera entering another apartment building in Oakville, where he again was unsuccessful in trying to get into the superintendent’s office and tenants’ mailboxes.
The suspect is described as a white man between 30 and 35 years of age who stands between five feet 10 inches and six feet tall with a slim build and dark hair.
He was wearing black pants, a black hoodie with a white zipper, white shoes and an army green camouflage hat, and was carrying a grey backpack at the time of the alleged incidents.
Police are asking the public to contact them if they have any information on the suspect.
