Suspects Sought in Milton Cigarette Break and Enters


Halton police need help identifying suspects involved in a series of break and enters targeting cigarettes in Milton.

The suspects are linked to four incidents in town on July 1, 6, 23 and 30.

At least two male suspects are involved in all four break-ins.

They hit up convenience stores and gas stations in the early morning driving stolen vehicles — typically four-door sedans, say investigators.  

A larger build male suspect smashes a window to get in and removes cigarettes and tobacco products from drawers and shelves.

A smaller build male suspect stands outside acting as a lookout and loads the vehicle trunk with the stolen cigarettes.

In the last incident in Milton a third suspect was also involved. This suspect is believed to be a female with a slight build.

The suspects are likely involved in several more similar incidents in Hamilton, police say.

They conceal their identities by wearing hoodies and face coverings and wear non-descript clothing.  

Anyone with information regarding the incidents is asked to contact Det.-Const. Mark Brewster of the 1 District criminal investigation bureau 905-825-4747 ext. 2428.
