Caledon OPP looking for heartless crook who stole urn from home during B&E


On Wednesday, August 2, 2017 officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a Break & Enter on Horseshoe Hill Road in Caledon Village.

One of the items stolen from the residence was an urn described as:

  • A cherry wood box
  • With a varnished semi-gloss finish
  • A bevelled edge top
  • Dimensions of 9.5 x 6 x 3 inches
  • With an engraving on the corner of the lid

The Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police state that “people tend to think of break-ins in strictly physical terms- that is, illegal access to your home, and items stolen or damaged. But break-ins can have a negative impact on a person’s mental well-being. Victims often speak of a sense of violation, which can lead to feelings of fear, anger, and emotional distress- and especially in children and the elderly.”

Police are asking anyone with information regarding this Break & Enter to contact Provincial Constable Jon AYSON of the Caledon OPP at (905) 584-2241or toll free at 1-888-310-1122.
