Female suspect sought in break & enters at apartment building


(Ottawa)— The Ottawa Police Service Break & Enter Unit is investigating several recent break & enters inside an apartment building and is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect responsible.

On September 12, 2017, during the later afternoon hours, several unlocked apartments, situated in a building along the 3500 block of Rivergate Way, were entered into by a lone female suspect. In one instance, a quantity of cash was later discovered missing. In two instances, the suspect opened the door and was confronted by the occupant. The suspect suggested she had the wrong apartment and quickly left.

The suspect is described as being a Caucasian female, 25-25, slim to average build, darker hair, wearing dark nursing style “scrubs”. (images attached)
