Hamilton police are investigating three Sunday break-ins, including one at an Ancaster pharmacy where suspects stole an undisclosed amount of oxycodone.
Hamilton police responded to three separate break-and-enter reports between the hours of midnight and 4 a.m. on Sunday. In all three incidents, the suspects had fled the scene before police arrived.
The first incident took place at a construction business in the area of Cascade Street and Covington Street at about 12:30 a.m., where police found a hole had been cut in the business’s fence. It was not immediately clear whether anything had been stolen.
Another incident occurred at Bell Stone Public School at 2 a.m., where police discovered that someone had thrown a large piece of asphalt through an office window and entered the school. Police say it did not look as though anything was taken.
The Dell Pharmacy in Ancaster was another location hit by a break-and-enter, with police arriving at the scene just before 4 a.m. In this case, the suspects broke into the business through the front door and stole an undisclosed amount of oxycodone before fleeing.
Hamilton Police continue to investigate all the three incidents, which are not thought to be related, according to media relations officer Debbie McGreal-Dinning.
