News Apr 12, 2016 by Tim Whitnell Burlington Post

Halton Regional Police is searching for three suspects following an apparent break-in attempt at a Burlington strip club.

Police received word around 4 a.m. today that a break and enter was in progress at Solid Gold on Plains Road East.

Police would not say who made the call or from where.

Halton’s massive presence at the scene included its K9 unit, hostage negotiators and heavily-armed tactical unit officers.

Hamilton police sent some tactical officers and an armoured vehicle.

It wasn’t until around 9 a.m., when officers stormed the club, that they realized no one was inside.

Officers searched the area around Solid Gold.

The K9 unit’s dog and officer patrolling south of Solid Gold found some articles around 10:30 a.m., in the vicinity of Fairwood Place West. Police have not elaborated on what they found.

Glass on a door at the rear of Solid Gold was smashed but it is not known if it is connected to the break-in.

Police have not said if anything was stolen from the club.

Police said late morning that the club was currently closed. Investigators left the club’s parking lot shortly after 11 a.m.

Police explained why they sent such a heavily-armed response.

“We have those units trained. They are specialized and highly trained and we have access to it…. You can’t assume anything. We wanted to structure our approach to be as safe as possible, in case there were suspects inside and armed,” said Halton police media relations Sgt. Dan Jaworski.

Roads around the club were blocked by police but were reopened by late morning.
