The Fort Saskatchewan RCMP saw a pattern of vehicle break-ins over the Easter weekend. 

According to the police, there were five reports of break-ins to vehicles, all of which included the suspect first checking for unlocked doors. 

If unlocked, the suspect entered the vehicle and targeted garage door openers to gain access to the garage. Several items were also taken from vehicles during these incidents.

As Mounties continue to investigate the break-ins, they're providing tips on how to prevent yourself from being a victim of these types of crimes: 

  • Never leave valuables in your vehicle.
  • Consider taking garage door openers inside.
  • Always place keys to vehicles in a safe place.
  • Lock vehicle doors.

The Fort Saskatchewan RCMP is asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect of these crimes. Police are asking anyone with home surveillance footage or information on the suspect to contact the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP at 780-997-7900.
