Morden Police continue to investigate a rash of break and enters this month. The number of local businesses targetted has risen to seven.

Since reporting on the thefts on and around Stephen St. last week a seventh business has reported a break and enter. The report comes from a business in the 300 block of Stephen St. where a quantity of cash was taken.

Previously, police reported two break-ins on March 6. The first saw suspects gain access to a locked cabinet and a quantity of cash was taken. Shortly after, police received a call of a second business that was broken into on Thornhill St. Suspects gained entry to several offices inside but it appears nothing was taken.

On March 7, police received three more complaints of businesses broken into overnight and one attempted break and enter. All four businesses were located along Stephen St. in Morden.

One business in the 400 block of Stephen St. saw suspects remove a small quantity of cash along with keys to a company vehicle parked behind the building. Suspects took the vehicle which was recovered later that same evening in the Portage La Prairie area.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to call the Morden Police Service at 822-4900 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. You can also submit a secure tip online at www.manitobacrimestoppers.com or text “TIPMAN” plus your message to CRIMES (274637).
