Burlington Halton police robbers break homes

Halton Regional Police have arrested a man in connection with a series of recent daytime break-ins in Oakville.

Johnathon Forgie, 43, of no fixed address, has been charged with four counts of break and enter.

At approximately 3 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon (June 14), police were called to an address on Sixth Line about reports that a male suspect had broken into a home through a basement window.

When the male suspect was confronted by the resident, he fled the scene without taking anything.

Police arrived at the area and quickly located and arrested the male suspect.

Further investigation determined the same suspect was also allegedly responsible for an additional two break-ins in the area of Sixth Line and McCraney Street earlier on June 14 and one break-in on Trafalgar Road on June 13.

In those three break-ins, police said the suspect was riding through the area on a burgundy bicycle and had entered the home via unlocked doors. Items stolen included jewelry, watches and wallets.

No physical injuries resulted from any of the break-ins.

Police were able to recover multiple stolen items at the time of the arrest.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact the 2 District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825-4777, ext. 2216.
