Tools stolen while homeowners away


A homeowner in Lindsay returned after a week's vacation to find their garage had been broken in to.

Kawartha Lakes Police say the St Patrick Street homeowner returned Tuesday and discovered a number of power tools missing from their garage.

Police are investigating the break and enter and remind residents that summer is popular time for thieves to look for unoccupied homes.

To protect your home while you are away, police suggest you  coordinate a friend or neighbour to check on your home and watch for suspicious activity, arrange for your mail to be picked up or held until your return, set your interior or exterior lights to a timer and don't post on social media that you are away from home.
