Niagara Police believe that four separate daytime residential break-ins in both Pelham and Welland yesterday (May 16) are connected and are on the lookout for three suspects.

Three homes in Pelham on Farr St., Rhodes Court and Kevin Dr., as well as a Welland home on South Pelham Dr. saw the suspects force entry into empty houses and ransack them for valuables.  Police says jewelry, cash, alcohol, and electronics were stolen.

The getaway vehicle is a white Ford Expedition Limited edition with stolen licence plate CEXF426.

The three men are described as:

Suspect One is a slender male wearing a grey baseball hat, grey hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, blue jean jacket over the sweatshirt, brown dress pants, white running shoes and a blue surgical mask, and black gloves.

Suspect Two is a slender male, wearing navy blue hooded sweatshirt with the hood up and string pulled tight, blue jeans, black shoes, and black gloves.

Suspect Three is also a slender male, wearing grey hooded sweatshirt with hood up, white sweatpants, grey and white shoes, and white gloves.

The police are asking residents in the areas of the break-and-enters “to review their closed-circuit cameras for any footage of the suspect vehicle or suspects between 8:00am and 4:00pm on May 16, 2023.”

Any information regarding the suspects, the suspect vehicle, or the break and enters is asked to contact detectives by calling 905-688-4111, option 3, extension 1023320.
