The SPAL also offered tips to avoid break-ins, especially nearing the upcoming holiday season:

  • Ask trusted neighbours to pay attention to any suspicious behaviour while you’re out of the house
  • Don’t leave your home completely dark
  • Pick up your mail
  • Lock the doors
  • Avoid leaving objects around your house that can help make access to windows easier
