Small businesses on Ottawa Street targeted in a series of break-ins

A rash of break-ins on Ottawa Street in Hamilton has business owners frightened.

Some contemplating leaving the popular district. One business had their door kicked in twice within a week.

The two businesses that were targeted say they have reported the incidents to police.

The owners and employees believe it’s most likely the same people breaking into the stores.

We tried reaching out to Hamilton Police, but have not yet heard back.
