Senior Finds House Intruder

Belwood | by Jill Young  

A 90 year old man found a man in his house Monday morning, rummaging through his belongings.

A bit of a scary incident for a senior in Wellington County after a man broke into a home.

OPP say a 90 year old man was home near Belwood Monday morning when he found a man rummaging through his belongings.

When the homeowner asked him why he was there, he said he was there to do repairs.

He claimed to then be going to his vehicle to get a business card and drove away.

Witnesses reported the suspect was white, in his 40s with grey hair and some facial stubble and had a slim build.
 
The suspect fled in a white pick-up truck with an 'X' on the back and the word "RESTORATION" or something similar on the side. 

Witnesses also report that the suspect seemed familiar and is believed to have possibly been soliciting driveway paving in the area during the summer of 2019.

The victim discovered that approximately $1000 in cash was taken.
