All of the reported burglaries took place in the Bruce Street, Pollard Street and Booth Street areas.

“We are looking for four black males who were seen in a light colored Ford pick-up,” Province said. “It appears they were either driving or walking down the street and getting into cars that were unlocked.”

Province urged people to make sure they keep their cars secured and call the BPD if they see anything unusual.

“Also, if anyone in the area had any kind of surveillance, we would like them to give us a call so we can look at the footage,” he said.

No arrests have been made. The case remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the BPD at 563-5653.
