There have been three recent break-ins in Lake Country. Two were reported on March 21 in the Carrs Landing area. The rear sliding glass door of a home on the 15,000 block of Barkley Road was smashed, the house rummaged through but nothing taken. A short time later a call was received from homeowners on the 13,000 block of Carrs Landing Road who returned home to find their front door open. A small window adjacent to the door had been smashed allowing thieves to gain entry. The thieves left with an amount of cash, a revolver style pellet gun, a black HP laptop (with large scratch on lid) and a jewellery box with various gold and silver chains. On March 25th two youths were home after school on the 14,000 block of Oyama Road when they heard someone enter the home and walk down the stairs to where they were sitting. They both observed a Caucasian male in his 20’s with a bad complexion and balding brown hair. They ran to a neighbor for help but the man got away (empty-handed).
