Since September 2019, four schools, four churches and nine businesses in Bradford and Innisfil were broken into during overnight hours by an unknown suspect who mainly targeted safes. As a result of an investigation involving the Street Crime Unit and several policing partners, a suspect was identified and arrested on January 7, 2020.
33-year-old William Pittman of Innisfil was charged with 94 offences:
17 counts Break-and-Enter
15 counts Possession of Break In Instruments
9 counts Theft
9 counts Disguise with Intent
16 counts Mischief
28 counts Fail to Comply
The accused remains in custody. A search warrant was executed at an Innisfil home where a number of items were seized including an ATV, safes, cash registers and cutting tools. The investigation is ongoing in the Simcoe County area. South Simcoe Police Service officers want to hear from anyone with further information who may have been victimized or witnessed suspicious activity.
Thank you to our policing partners who worked with us to end this string of break-and-enters in our communities. We also want to recognize the great cooperation we received from the victims of this intrusive and unsettling crime who assisted police with information and security video.
