Queensborough has had a jump in residential break-ins within the past three months with as many as nine, according to New Westminster police.

While the police say they don't have a suspect description, there is a pattern to the break-ins. They are occurring in the daytime when no one is home. Other similarities have also been identified and investigators are working with other municipal forces to identify trends and suspects.

Police are asking anyone seeing a suspicious person in Queensborough to contact them at 604-525-5411. If you see someone pushing, pulling or prying at building doors or windows call 9-1-1 taking note, from a safe distance, of the suspect's description, exact location and any vehicles that might be associated with the suspect.
