Assistance Sought in Identifying Break and Enter Suspect

Posted On Thursday August 24, 2023

Region of Peel– Investigators from the 12 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau are seeking assistance in identifying the suspect responsible for a break-and-enter in a place of worship in the Malton area of Mississauga.

On Monday, June 12th, between 3:00 and 4:00a.m., a suspect entered a temple in the 1800 block of Drew Road in Malton.  Once inside, the suspect stole currency from donation boxes before fleeing the scene.

There was no damage to the temple's religious symbols or artifacts.  Investigators are confident that the suspect's motives were to steal the contents of the donation boxes and that this was not a hate-motivated crime. 

The suspect is described as male, dark complexion, average build, wearing a black hoody with the hood up, a white surgical facemask, black pants, and Nike running shoes (grey with white trim). 

Investigators are asking for anyone with information that may identify the suspect to call the 12 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at (905) 453–2121, ext. 1233.  Anonymous information may also be submitted by calling Peel Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or by visiting
