    Garage door break-ins in Red Deer – Red Deer Advocate

    There’s a new crime pattern in the city: garage break-ins.

    Social media reports have surfaced about garage break-ins in the city in the past two weeks. Some of the incidents have been filed with the RCMP, but police can’t say how many cases have been reported.

    The break-ins have “unique methods,” said Staff Sgt. Jeff McBeth. He explained thieves usually try to knock the overhead garage door off its tracks.

    “They’re using something, whether it’s a vehicle or brute force, and coming in contact with the overhead door, whether it’s a single door or a double door, trying to knock it off its tracks in some manner to allow a person to enter,” McBeth said.

    “The manner in the way it’s been done, it’s hard for me to say, but there does appear to be the theme in these (break-ins).”

    Red Deer RCMP is looking at all the cases in “totality.” McBeth said the general investigation unit is investigating to see whether the cases are linked.

    “Can we say that they’re all associated? Or if they have no association at all? Is it one person, one group, multiple groups, multiple people?

    “It’s very early on for us to substantiate any of that. But we’ve asked them to look at them from a total perspective,” he explained.
