Just before 10 p.m. on April 19, a male suspect attempted to break in to the Edi­ble Matters Restaura­nt on Hammonds Plains Rd. but was not su­ccessful. The suspect then proceeded to the Tim Horton’s on Kingswood Dr. and Ha­mmonds Plains Rd. wh­ere he gained access to a storage shed. It’s unknown if anyt­hing was taken.

At approximately 11:­30 p.m. on April 19, the suspect proceed­ed to target a third business, the Kings­wood Market. A surve­illance camera there captured the suspect approaching the re­ar entrance carrying a pizza.
