Members of the Rainy River District OPP are requesting the public's assistance in solving five break-and-enters that occurred on the Red Wing Road in the Morson area over the past week.

Unknown culprit(s) entered the seasonal residences and stole numerous items, including alcohol, a generator, a television, and a number of firearms.
