Police continue to remind the public to be vigilant about locking doors and securing windows. Residents are encouraged to report any suspicious activity in the area to Hamilton Police at (905) 546-4861 or 9-1-1 for a crime in progress.

It is too early to link all the cases and Hamilton Police Service continues to investigate.
