A rifle has been snatched during a break-in at a Brampton home, marking the second case of firearm theft in four weeks, two kilometres apart.
“It’s a concern because it’s another gun on the street,” said Peel Regional Police Const. George Tudos.
The incident took place in a densely populated area known for gang activity, prompting cops to issue a public safety alert Saturday.
Officers responded to a call at 1 p.m. Friday at a home near Bramalea Rd. and Clark Blvd., just east of the Bramalea City Centre, where a long rifle and electronics were reported stolen.
The victims were not home and police have no suspect descriptions.
The rifle is described as a black Winchester Bolt Action .270 calibre rifle with scope.

The October 29 break and enter took place 2 kms north on Grassmere Cres. at 12:30 p.m.
Three guns, a crossbow, jewellery and electronics were stolen from the home. Much like the Nov. 27 incident, the victims were not present and police have no suspect information.

Here are the firearms reported stolen last month:

  • SKS 5.62 calibre rifle with a wood stock and scope
  • Break Action 20 gauge Baikal shotgun with a wood stock
  • Pump action 12 gauge Remington shotgun with a black plastic stock
  • Redhead compound bow
Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators at (905) 453-2121 ext. 2133 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477
