    Edmonton police are investigating 90 garage break-ins in neighbourhoods on the city’s south side over the last several weeks.

    The neighbourhood of Ritchie has been especially hit hard, with 26 garage break-ins reported to police since Feb. 1, a news release said Thursday.

    • make sure overhead door closes completely after driving in or out of garage;
