Windsor police officers have arrested a 53-year-old man in connection to a series of residential break-and-enters in west Windsor.

Since the beginning of June 2024, there have been at least three confirmed break-ins at residential homes in the area. In all cases, police say residents were asleep in their homes at the time of the break-and-enter.

Through a comprehensive investigation, the Windsor Police Target Base Unit identified a suspect. On June 19, members of the Problem-Oriented Policing Unit (POP) located and arrested the suspect following a brief foot chase in the 1300 block of University Avenue.

The man is charged with the following:

  • Break-and-enter a dwelling with intent to commit an indictable offence (x 3)
  • Wearing a disguise with intent to commit an indictable offence (x 3)
  • Theft under $5,000
  • Mischief under $5,000

He also had outstanding warrants of assault, mischief under $5,000, and breach of probation (x 2).

He is considered a person of interest in other break and enters in the city. Anyone with information is asked to call the Target Base Unit at 519-255-6700, ext. 4350. They can also contact Windsor & Essex County Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477 (TIPS) or online at www.catchcrooks.com.
