York Regional Police have arrested four people in connection to over 38 break-ins across the GTA
Officers have laid more than 65 charges against them as a part of an investigation called Project Copyright.
The 4 men would ring doorbells or knock on doors of homes in York and Peel region, and kick in the doors when there was no answer.
They would make their way into homes and bedrooms searching for jewelry and other property which they would then allegedly sell for cash.
Police held a press conference this morning to show off property recovered as a result of the investigations.
They also offered advice for homeowners on how to prevent break ins and make your home less appealing to thieves.
Police say most of the break ins occurred between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Police say to always set your alarms and answer the door to let people know you are home.
They suggested keeping your lawn and shrubs cut to let criminals know you aren’t on vacation.
Some other tips included not having glass on your front door as it can easily be broken. They also suggested having a deadbolt lock on every door including the one in the garage.
Jordan Saccucci, Maurice Beckles, Harun Murad and Jamaar Taylor each face a string of charges. Three of them were out on probation for previous break in charges.
